    SubjectRe: IDE?
    	I just looked at the patch to switch to "2.4 forward port"
    version of drivers/ide. If I got my shell commands right, Martin's
    tree is 8606 lines shorter than the 2.4 forward port.

    2.4 forward port 49,205 lines
    Martin's version 40,599 lines
    8,606 lines difference

    It's often amazing how much cleaning up it takes to shrink
    code a little bit. Shrinking the IDE tree this much is a lot of
    work to throw away.

    In comparison, I think Niklaus Wirth's Modula-2 compiler for
    the Lilith machine was 5,000 lines.

    Is the 2.5.31 IDE tree that buggy? I would hope that stamping
    out bugs from Martin's tree would be less work than cleaning up
    the 2.4 version to that point again.

    I'd be quite relieved if we could convince Bartlomiej to
    adopt Martin's tree and continue with Martin's tree as at least
    a configuration option.
