I plan to not drop ANY current features or functions (except djgpp :)),
but many of them will be missing or not functional during rewrite. For me,
it is impossible to keep it all working while changing blocks of code, and 
all xwpe developers have my respect for fact that xwpe is working, and more,
it is working good :)
