Having now gotten WinCVS to work (somewhat), here's another question
somewhat related to this topic...

I see in rev. 1.78 of 'check' that Gerald has moved to lq-nsgmls in place
of nsgmls as the SGML parser.  Does Liam (Liam, are you there?) plan on
making a Win32 binary available, similar to those for James Clark's SP
package?  Are the changes negligible enough that I can copy nsgmls.exe to
lq-nsgmls.exe, or is lq-nsgmls's output sufficiently different that the
check script reflects those differences?  It's one thing for me to modify
a Perl script, but I'm not a C/C++ coder, so re-compiling is not in the
cards for me.
