Not really. It indicates the extent of intertwining and thus
(probably) unnecessary complication, and thus the (likely) presence
of associated undetected bugs.

It's utterly irrelevant to the point being discussed. Since you
apparently haven't bothered to read anything but the most recent
followup, I'm not sure how you can determine whether it's relevant or not.

Here's the context. The lcc-win string library has been released to
the public domain, but apparently it's only available as part of the
lcc-win distribution. The installer is a Windows executable, which
means that people who either don't have Windows (or, yes, Wine under
Linux) or who don't choose to trust the executable are going to have
difficulty obtaining the sources.

Unless, of course, jacob or someone else makes them available in some
other form. The library still won't work with anything other than
lcc-win, but at least people could study it if they were so inclined.
