There is no branch to merge yet.  We first need to get it into a
branch.  Then people will have a chance to work on it.  At the moment,
it is only kept in a completely different repository.

other people actually had a chance of assessing the problems and
working with them.  Up to now, all we have about the other platforms
are guesses.
