	Looks good to me - but the ultimate arbiter is
to *test* the change before you commit it. If it works
at least as well as the old one (try running 16 bit
executables from Win95 and make sure they're happy
with the mangled names etc) - then go for it !

BTW: main branch only - is that your intention ?



Buying an operating system without source is like buying
a self-assembly Space Shuttle with no instructions.
