I'd be interested if anyone has tried it using a technique like this. But I'm expecting
that the only real problems will be the three object code binary plug files that have been
mentioned on this list previously:
-- libt2k (font rendering)
-- libdcpr (some low-level graphics2D code)
If someone has addressed these, that would be the most useful.
