Actually, the main reason is that I have a great deal of respect for
other people's work, and would not consider undoing it except as the
very last resort.

When I said I didn't know whether MULTI_KBOARD had a significant part
in having me invest many-many hours in bringing the DOS port back to
life, I really meant it.  There were two large merges to struggle
with -- unicode-2 and multi-tty -- and many smaller changes, one of
them MULTI_KBOARD.  Trying to understand how many percents each one
contributed to the plight would be a complete waste of my time.
