Are there other platforms we would need to get a basic hold on before
merging?  From what Eli has said, there seems to be little point in
going overboard keeping MSDOS functional in the trunk for now.  If
there is no sufficient impetus to keep it in our portfolio, it should
not prevent a merger.  While it is still not clear to me that it would
be a good idea to tackle the remaining architectural and usage issues
from the trunk, having the platform support showstopper out of the way
would at least be a good start.
