No, if I understand my code I should be just passing a couple of
char * pointers to vw_printw. Ah, and that is the problem the third
argument needs to be a va_list. I think I will just comment those guys
out and return unsupported for the moment.  As you say, trying to put a
va_list across simply won't fly since there is no facility for creating
one of those in the test language... yet.  It is interesting that it
compiled on i386 ok, it expect the function would explode when you tried
to call it.

OK, that sounds sufficiently ugly for me not to try.
