Well, today on IRC you mentioned Atari too many times for an Amiga guy's
taste, so I couldn't resist...



And besides, it was a decade old wish of me to have recent FPC running on
Amiga again. This also means the CG also somewhat works for a "full" 68k,
the 68020, not just for ColdFire. Sadly, it's known to be broken for plain
68000, so now really back to fixing some CG issues, before adding more
platform-specific mess... :)
