ok - I'm not in a hurry.  Am basically waiting for Klaus to look into Laura's
problem (have too many other things to do to get bogged down in that one,
sorry).  But will work on the bugs that I know I can fix.

probably more documentation is needed - I added the option so I could do
test builds (the remaining ifdef's seem to be ones that I don't have a good
way to test them, so I left them as is).  It seems to work, but I don't like
that it doesn't query/restore the original fonts.

Running test builds yesterday, I still have problems with CLIX and SunOS
(the latter, because that memmove is still -or again- in GridText, and the
former a bit more obscure).  So I'll have another patch in a few days once
I've had a chance to see what else I should fix.
