Right,

1) Any implementation following the Castle 32bit SCL pattern is full compatible with all correctly written programs linked against the new 32bit/C99 stubs, the old 26bit/C90 stubs, and ROL's intermediate C90 stubsG used in 26bit or 32bit modes.

2) It is ridiculous this has become necessary to support the A9, all three parties involved need putting in a room and given a good kicking until the correct licences are sorted out, and an officially supported 26/32bit C90/C99 SCL is released for all RISC OS machines.

3) An open source implementation of the SCL would still be useful in some other ways so it wouldn't be a complete waste of time even if the official version gets sorted out. For example easier debugging of callback based code, and also to allow core SCL functions to be performed natively on emulators.
