On the other hand, I had it working, with all the key assignments and
features I need, within 20 minutes of downloading it.  If nothing else,
those working of the development of TN5250 should take a look at the
features offered by this program.  The keyboard mapping and option
dialogs are excellant, and the design choices reflect a very good
understanding of the platform.  This is the kind of ease-of-use that is
required for a package that's going to be remotely distributed to end
users.
