Oh, well. Any other takers? :-)

My plan is still to get a new version out in the not too far future. I can see
that this are all real needs, but the point in time is unfortunate. I still do
have my own list to process and I'm slowly shifting back into money making
mode, which means that I have less time for cc65.

Can we discuss this after the release? Since there is an implementation using
ioctl(), I cannot see an urgent need for a change.

I will have to check the existing drivers before I can comment.

Which is perfectly legal. This is what tgi_ioctl was thought for: platform
dependent driver extensions.
