Hi Hamish

I did wonder if upgrading visually XASTIR would be more productive. But what 
we are talking about here is building a framework to allow people to pick 
and mix there application and to promote developing of new components 
without the need to recompile the core framework.

I always find anything in C a real pain in the backside to compile. Contrast 
that with Java where all you need is the correct classpath defined.
