So why should I cripple VCPI to make your favorite DOS extender happy? There probably exist bare applications -- and possibly a DOS extender though I don't know of any -- which allocate entirely through VCPI if it's flagged as available.

Although I am considering adding a MAX= option to EMM386, kind of like HIMEM's, but which limits memory available to VCPI. EMS, too, if MAX is <32M.

Regardless, somebody should figure out what's going on in DOS/32A's head as far as VCPI.
