I have no problem using cygwin derived code per se.
But LINE uses cygwin in an original way.

My point is:  with LINE, Debian-i386 can be used as is. No porting
required.  (LINE already runs actual Linux programs.)

With traditional cygwin, all Debian has to be recompiled and probably
Glibc needs to be ported to ease that recompile.

It is anybodys shot which way is the easiest, but I believe LINE is.
(Since LINE already can run complex Linux applications.)

Of course, none of this matters until somebody digs in, one approach
or another. I am all talk and nothing else at this stage. If you decide
to go for either approach, more power to you.


It's is not, it isn't ain't, and it's it's, not its, if you mean it
is.  If you don't, it's its.  Then too, it's hers.  It isn't her's.  It
isn't our's either.  It's ours, and likewise yours and theirs.
