The only thing missing from the BeOS port, are the wrappers around 
the C++ API of BeOS, and a clean interface unit with libroot.sockets
and other such base libraries. For the rest the BeOS port should be 
considered complete i think. It would really be great if the BeOS 
wrappers could be added to the FPC packages so that native GUI 
applications can be developped.
