as far as my machines and chosen OS', true... as far as sticking with pascal and

i note that the term "overlay" was used above... is this some fancy OS GUI 
thing? why can't the plain icons beside each package carry these notations??

oh, wait... mid-september... i need to update this dev box to the latest and see 
what it shows... my other box is updated but i rarely go into the packages 
area... i'll do this update in a bit and see what turns up ;)
