Please, commit it Bernard.

I couldn't look at your patches, but I agree with Miguel. Better to
have something new, even with some cracks, than nothing.

Also, about the tests, I've commented sometime, ago: We will have to
"multiplex" in all three scenarios : Strict & Explicit off, Strict off
& Explicit On, Strict On (that turns Explicit On). Because lots of
things get compiled and execute in one or two of these scenarios and
not in the remaining.

Thanks for your help with MonoBASIC. After helping us a lot on the
multiarchitecture/multiOS front, I'm happy that you choose to bring
your attention to our little corner...

Thanks again,
