I wonder if there is any interest in creating such "system-level" stuff by
us, the users, maybe under a BSD or GPL type license.  I've written a
bunch of things that are useful.  Maybe others have something, too?  I'm
thinking stuff along the lines of what is in libc - generic stuff.  Things
like opendir(), atoi(), etc.  I mean header files that would expose the
APIs more easily to RPG.
