It's not a priority, of course.   Many apps do bizarre, stupid things.

That said: I have in the past converted some class unix apps to vu

You are assuming the answer to a "make or take" decision regarding
legacy software.   That's a mistake, imo.

I'll call "time" rather than replying to the rest of your message.
