Patches were accepted, but Francois hasn't made a new demo since I did the
port. This is very inconvenient for me, since I'm not allowed to publish some
of his later additions.

The port is fairly trivial though, see http://www.stack.nl/~marcov/ics.html for
some of my notes.

Note that the port covers the non visual parts only.

That should afaik be possible, but better ask on the lazarus list.
