Can you discuss a bit further what the separation issues are.
I did some thinking about this when I was initially discussing a wintab

Might be a useful reference for other people looking at dll separation

Ok, so you'll integrate the patches I sent.
One suggestion: When you apply the patches, re-work the
Packet reading functions to make the flush vs. read functionality
clearer. My patch doesn't make the difference clear to the casual

If you want I could do this re-working after you've posted your new patch.

I will work up some fixes to the Photoshop, and Painter issues with the
current code, and release patches aganist your forthcoming patch.
.... Unless you want to do that?
