Greetings!  Thanks as always Mike for your incredible efforts here.  I
really apologize if recent developments have made your life more
difficult.  I think the immediate fixnum and two word cons which they
support ar eworth the effort on mingw -- certainly (hopefully) Jared
at the University of Texas woudl concur!

I likely need to summarize this to the list -- when I get a moment.
The basic idea is to get as much heap space as possible after
determining any limits set by the stack location and shared memory
addresses, then set an immediate fixnum table in the inaccessible range.

Take care,
