That's what I originally planned to do, anyways. The benefit of lxdoom becoming
GPL means that it can be distributed - which I wasn't aware of - and lxdoom
was planning on supporting non-original wadfiles later anyways. Maybe this
could be a bit of a push to the author (or me.. I might find some time
in-between school, which starts tomorrow (!)) to enhance it to work properly.
And all the while, here are my ancient The Ultimate DOOM disks, waiting 
to get used...
