Hi John and all Cygnus friends,

John, I wasn't expecting that you would install into the main
directory but into the ipc.new/ subdirectory unless it was
tested on *all* platforms.
Never mind...

Very true! I still would be glad if the developers could meet
each other!

No, Huidae just implemented two new parameters into "configure":

  --with-ipc              use ipc XDriver instead of fifo (for Cygwin)
  --with-fifo             use fifo XDriver instead of ipc (default)

Huidae - good idea, thanks!

So it shouldn't bother you any more and the IPC code can be
savely developed in parallel.
