Hi David:

Actually, no, I hadn't seriously considered that. Simply
didn't occur to me.  How stable is it these days?  :-)
DVP support obviously doesn't matter on newer hardware,
we'll use external voice keyers or DVK's. How's the
CW keying under Windows XP?

Fear of the unknown is also an issue!  :-)
