If I were to port such a thing, I'd seriously consider eliminating  
design flaws. In my last N years of programming, I don't think I have  
copied once. Copy always smells of something strange. Better to  
eliminate while you recover design information and fix it before it  
bites you later.

Keep asking. Perhaps we can turn this into a neat experiment -- Matthias
