      Maintenance for Mac OS has always been quite slow. And the old code
      made it more difficult to work on the OS/X code.

      Some people still run Windows 95/98 and even DOS is used in some
      specific applications. It's good to have Vim there. I can compile
      these versions without much trouble.

      The Win16 version isn't very popular, but so long as Vince keeps
      maintaining it I don't mind including his patches.
