In reply to rjek (a few comments back):

"tbh, I'd have thought the ImageFile stack and the new sprite stuff would be much more complex than the WIMP upgrades. Quite a few things depend on new features in the kernel, where all that's happened for rounded buttons is the abstraction of the WIMP's icon drawing routines to an external module."

I guess the ImageFile stuff is more complex, but just think of ImageFS which does run on IYONIX with no kernel changes - nobody said that ROL doesn't have to amend their code to run on RO5, but quite a few of the Select enhancements like ImageFile* and the apps can be made to run on RO5 since similar or even better features and apps manage.
