Yeah, I know, that's why I said I don't plan to submit it. I have better
things to do than try making this compile on ancient^Waging systems :)

If anybody wants to do it, all the better, but if it makes the code as
unreadable and stupid as it was in coolscan2.c (like parsing bytes from
a string at runtime...) then I will not take such a patch nor help
maintain a forked version.
