Bob: I really have no idea what you're saying here. Perhaps taking time to compose a coherent argument would result in a shorter, more understandle post. As always, using of "!!!!", etc, never improves readability.

As for fetchmail; I suspect I'm the only person who _has_ actually looked at it, and I even did a port of it to RISC OS at one point. I concluded that the effort to make it usable in RISC OS would be considerable - I think you could easily spend a week mucking about with it.

"5 hours" is a long way from realistic. I'm willing to bet, that for most people, even getting it to compile at all would take this long, because of the relatively complex process of ensuring you have the right cross compiling setup, working GCCSDK, correct libraries, etc, etc.

I know that Rob's having a bit of a laugh with his post, and I know he knows he's also being a bit of a troll.
