  Grabbed it and had a (quick) look,  still a lot of background reading to
do though...

  I was mainly interested in looking at the Win95 stuff (sick I know),
however some of the files mentioned in the README.win95 are not available:

  The compiled stuff I'm not too interested in yet (since my server is
currently down awaiting a PSU and new disks),  however I would like to
have a look over the source for mc.vxd & mcstub.vxd.

  One question I've got already:  Why is the relay.exe process being
used?  Is it the case the (for some reason) we're unable to select
on the direct file descriptor for the open device (mc.vxd) and thus
have to go via relay.exe,  or is this simply a debug aid?
