That sounds great.

Thanks.  I'd very much like to see the code.  However, it might be a
better idea to keep the two lilypad versions, and have a separate
frontend program make the decision which one to run.

This modification seems to be so large that it would mean a fork from
Wine's notepad, on which lilypad is based, and I wonder if that is
a smart thing to do right now?

Thanks; I already should have fixed this in lilypad-0.0.6; do you have
this as a separate patch?
