Hmm... I got so tired of switching back and forth in these directories
that I fixed the problem another way: I went the lazy route and
downloaded Console for Windows (multitabbed CLI from here
http://sourceforge.net/projects/console). :) Yes, I agree it isn't
necessarily easy the way it works now.
The problem is that the examples will grow to a large number per
directory and having one dsss.conf per example would not make sense
either. I suppose a compromise would be to add a dsss.conf file per
sample directory instead? This would certainly make things easier for
building the larger examples like controlexample.

Mentioning the two in the same breath is apparently a great evil. :-D

Right, I'll continue to look into this.
