Then they presumably won't be accepted as a massive code drop at then
end either right ?
The soonner you get them in shape, learning the quirck specific to
this project, the easier it will be to upstream :-)
(yes I read Haiku's code formatting convention :-) please do _not_
follow them for LO patches :-) )

For example you prolly will need some patch/new files in
these would likely not be too controversial as they are platform
specific files anyway.

Good, As long there are people willing to do the work, we tend to try
accommodate things :-)
