        I would if I could - I have a legacy code base of ~45000 lines
of kernel code (it's a 200K kernel module with the NT DDK stubs),
plus ~13000 lines of API library.

        It turns out that the customer doesn't need that particular API call
for their target application, so I can put this bear off until I
can get them to rework their API to be ameniable to both Linux and NT.

        As the Polish in Pittsburgh say: Oy Vey!
