	Brilliant work :-)

	Incidentally, if changing the format of the scp2 files to make them
easier to parse is sensible, we should do that too - the files all come
from scp2/ (as you can see).

	Also wrt. semantic differences, you can see the setup_osl.ins that much
of the parsing work is done on inside the solver/ If we get a Windows
setup_osl.ins and a Mac one to you, you can be sure that whatever
theoretical problems may occur, that potentially problematic constructs
do not in fact exist in the real world scp2 we execute :-) I whacked an
RC4 Windows setup_osl.inf here:

	Yes - this is the right place !

	Can you confirm your work is under LGPLv3+/MPL please too ?

	Thanks again,
