Yes, a perfectly sensible strategy, but one not available to me right at
this moment,
since the backporting requirement emerged AFTER the code had been written!

On broader front the correct answer to my dilemma is obviously to
on a dev environment including compilers, third party libs etc. I say
but in practise there seem to be innumerable political hurdles to overcome.
is the life of a production software engineer I guess, but really the hidden
of all this phaphing about must be immense!
