Hans Oesterholt-Dijkema, who wrote the patch, is not affiliated with Digital
Mars. But it's been my experience that any requests for a feature tend to be
a tiny tip of the iceberg, 99% will just silently walk away from your
product if it doesn't do X. And you *do* have a request, from someone who
obviously cared enough to write a non-trivial patch for your product.
Other products, such as wxWindows, have seen quite a lot of Digital Mars
users embrace it once it started supporting DMC++.
