I just don't want to be a wet blanket, but I also don't want to have my heart
broken again. ;~) I want you to succeed, since I want to use the tool (as long
as it works in MultiEdit for Windows that is). As long as you have a big "We
Really Are Working on Something! It's not all Talk!" on the web site, that
would be fine by me (though I'm hardly the one you have to convince).

I would recommend that you follow the method that the Igloo developer did:
create a compatibility DLL which encapsulates all of the SCC code. Then you can
opensource the rest of the project, which would make it much more likely that
you would get help from the larger community.

My 2 cents
