The problem with fvision is that this is GPL code written by Leon de Boer
that is now quite old, and Leon told us already sometime ago that he
has now more complete code...
But until now I still didn't get the latest version of its code,
that's why we never really started to make the transition from the
currently used fv code (that is based on the Borland Copyrighted sources)
and Leon's GPL sources.

   Leon, if you still are online, please tell us about the current standpoint
of your library !
