I agree on both points which is part of my motivation to raise the issue.

As I see it we have three choices:

1. Do nothing more to "os2/run.c".
2. Add "FIXME: ..." to "os2/run.c".
3. Cut and paste new functions into "os2/run.c"

Option 1 penalizes innocent OS/2 newbies by wasting their time when I feel
we should reward newbies by easing their entry when economical to do so.

I'll implement at least Option 2 by Wednesday.  Do you have any preferred
language or points you'd want covered in the "FIXME" note?
