Yes.  Currently, my changes are Cygwin specific and really don't apply to
the other platforms.

I'm aware of O_TEXT and I thought I'd changed all of the places where
files are opened already, but I just checked my patches and those changes
are gone!  AARRGGHH!!  Ok, I'll re-edit and get that back in.  Going

the thought!
