Yes, avoiding unnecessary work was the intention. But i didn't like it,
too. I am wondering that you didn't throw away those ugly stat functions in
the windows platform file.

I need also to get the SWIG changes, too, so it might be better if i throw
my version away ;) I will send in another little patch to the archivers

Perhaps you can help me with a short step list. I have a branch ErrorCode
i am working on and a default branch. Now i would like to throw away my
default branch and take yours again. How would you do this with mercurial?
