Then the Plugin Oberon compiler and the Native
Oberon compiler are out of sync (* sigh *).
Since both of these compilers basically have
the same job (compiling N.O. code on an
Intel platform) I wonder if fixing this is
as simple as copying the compiler from N.O.
into P.O.?  Of course when the Active/Plugin
Oberon port gets finished this will be a
moot point.

No bother at all!  I'm learning more about the
various Oberon compilers and that's good.
