Well!  That is a horse of a differant colour!

I will be glad to let you do the work instead of me and I will be glad 
compile it and run it and submit bug reports etc.  This is work worth
doing IMHO.

I also have a long neglected plan to port the heirloom troff/nroff code
over to VMS just because I am too lazy to switch to Digital Standard Runoff.

No matter what the platform, of all the image viewers/editors out there,
XV is the viewer I love the best!!!!!!
