Doug, I don't speak for Topologika. I know the people involved and when we
spoke I said that I consider that to be the case. However, as per our
conversation, if people do show good interest in one or more of their
programs then I'm sure Brian will allow me to port it/them.

I'd be interested to know what people think about running Java applications
since this could be an interesting way forward in persuading people to port.
When I say Java I mean using the Runtime Environment and not the netscape
