we don't seem to have a "compat" ports category, don't we ?  and i
don't think this goes into the base system, or at least i don't
have a good clue on the licensing issues yet - there are things i
have rewritten from scratch, there are others (headers mostly, plus
short inline functions) i just copied from GPL sources,
and the modules themselves that you can build generally come
from GPL sources.

A port seems the safest option from that point of view...
