Nobody said it wasn't impossible. It's just a lot of effort for little gain. (Few of the new APIs are actually *useful*.)

Well done for finding a feature that a handful of people use; the 64k colour mode support hack, which is only useful because ROL haven't made a release suitable for machines with a design from the last decade and a half.

I see you don't content the dozens of other features that no body uses. I still stand by that most of the new features ROL have introduced see little, if any, use, and the tiny handful that ROOL's branch has are all extremely useful and well-regarded.
