The reason is very simple -- a) I'm lazy, and b) I don't have a Unix box
handy to test on.
There's really no obvious place to define that function in at the
moment, and putting into a C file (and therefore compiling it
separately) would mean I'd have to tweak build.conf, which don't want to
do on Windows. I'd also have to tweak a load of .dsp's again, too.

Correctness first, as usual. I'll fix these issues presently, but even
deciding where to put such a function (it doesn't fit in any of our
libraries) takes some thought.

Huh? Why would debugging into this function be any different from
debugging into any other function? the debugger knows which source file
the function is in.
