They are both on my "to do" list, along with upgrading to CW 6.0 (which I
haven't received yet) and adding Comeau (which I just recieved).

Didn't someone request we continue 5.4 support because some Borland RAD

Agreed. From a practical standpoint, the maintenance work and compile time
just grow too large if we add too many compilers.

The other thing I'd like to see added is testing under the Apple OS, and on
some workstation such as Sun or SGI.
