    As much as I hate to toss Chris Rees "under the bus" on this, he's
be EXTREMELY helpful to me when creating ports that have small hiccups
like this. He's very knowledgeable. While he might be a bit too busy to
be a "mentor", I'm sure he wouldn't have a problem pointing you in the
right direction(s) if you have questions about ports. He'll most likely
reply to this with what he thinks about it...

    Other than that, I can always help out as much as I can with
questions if you want to email me directly about your port. I know the
ins-and-outs about porting and I'd be more than happy to lend a hand.
