I didn't expect a top-level dsss.conf.  Maybe I would have expected one 
inside the dwtexamples folder, but the top level of dwt-samples looks so 
disorganized that I totally didn't expect there to be a 
"one-dsss.conf-to-rule-them-all" setup.  That only makes sense to me if 
the expected way to use the samples is to compile them all at once.  But 
I don't think that's generally how people use samples.  They find one 
that's relevant or which they're curious about and compile it.  Having 
the dsss at the top level makes that more complicated because have to cd 
back and forth or specify longer path names a lot.

I wish Gregor used Windows.  :-)  Then it would be easier, no doubt.

Yep.  WinXP.  Images missing on the buttons, and toolbars.
