Well, isn't that interesting?  I just proved you can port libslang to a
Borland-style Dos Window under Windows 16.  It is only a step away from
this to use Borland-style conio.h (setcolor, gotoxy, etc.) calls to
implement libslang under Dos.  And, of course, WIN32 libslang.lib is one
of the source-code options for the slang source.
