Hi Nick and all,

> It is on my todo list to pull in boxi somehow - any help????

I'm not sure what you mean by "pull in", but I'm very happy to collaborate 
on making Boxi build on native win32 and work with boxwin.

Since Boxi calls the Box Backup libraries when communicating with the 
server, it would probably be enough to replace the supplied 
boxbackup-0.09.tgz with a similar tarball of Boxwin source, fix any 
conflicts in boxbackup.patch, and then fix any remaining Win32 
incompatibilities in Boxi. The last shouldn't be too hard, as it already 
builds and (almost) works under Cygwin :-)

But I haven't tried it yet. Does it seem like a reasonable way to proceed? 
Or did I misunderstand the question?

Cheers, Chris.
