I haven't got the time to do that, but I checked the overall design.
According to the previous post you've made, I think that the overall design
is OK, so writing the Borland specific stuff will be possible without
breaking anything.
I'll look at this latest post during the rest of the day, and I'll see if
adding the Borland code will fit into the design (even if I don't actually
add anything). Should I find any problems I'll let you know right away.
