Strange, the -devel list should not strip attachments.

I originally didn't look closely. Now that I investigate, it looks like it was the mail server that blocked outgoing email with .bat attachments saying "unsafe windows attachment - resend as TAR or GZ".

I'm not sure I understand, it seems that the test is for operating
system flavour, not for unicode functionality

Yes, that is right. I was thinking along the lines of minimizing the amount of "extra" stuff that a user would need to install to use lilypad. Since Win 9x/ME will probably go the way of the dinosaur in the next couple of years, just wasn't sure it was worth the extra complication. Maybe not a good decision... Sorry if I'm showing a US-centric bias.

I thought that you said the unicode version of lilypad would work when
the user installs compatibitily libraries?  Did I misunderstand?

Actually, you need to link the unicode version of lilypad against a special library that then detects if the compatibility libraries are necessary, and if so, if they're installed. My modifications for a non-unicode version of lilypad didn't include how to link against said library.
