Embedding MrEd is a pain at best, and probably impractical. Certainly
the requirements of "libmredxxxxxxx.dll" on its environment are not
documented. Maybe you could do it by imitating "mrmain.cxx" within a
new application, but I think there are too many global assumptions
built into MrEd to make it work well.

In short, I advise looking for a different solution. Drop by if you'd
like to talk about it more.
