Well, we'll need a better NIE for that I'm afraid. See my message in
a bottle I sent on csnp.

So we'll get three people working on those.

I'm ready to help whoever wants to program on the Newton (in
particular at the lowest level) in the reasonable limit of my time
and my knowledge. You can post questions to my mailbox, my NPDS
server or on NTLK/csnp,where, like most other developers around, I
always try to answer technical questions as they arrive.

Additionaly, you can contact the two developers working (separately)
on such an issue, Gopi Flaherty and Hiroshi Noguchi. They both have a
good knowledge of the newton bowels and they may be of better help
than what I can provide.
