Neat.  I was thinking about this on the way home last night a bit,
but if you already have a solution then that's great.

I have about another 500 or so (a guess, but I reckon the actual
number isn't far off) of Solaris or general portability fixes, so I
can hold off on these for a bit and just stick to the other compiler
