Thanks for the idea. It doesn't work unfortunately. In any case I'd
probably not be happy relying on an interim workaround.

Well, it's a sorry tale... ;)

Peter's set up an svn source repository for WinEd on riscos.info but
unfortunately the RISC OS svn port doesn't work with HostFS
( http://www.virtualacorn.co.uk/forum/viewtopic.php?t=323 ).

To solve this, I've got my working copy on my Windows drive (which does
have the pleasing side effect of me being able to use TortoiseSVN) under
Cygwin, which I can access as a "mount point" from inside RISC OS, but
the unix-style filenames don't get translated into RISC OS style c, h,
o, s directories, so the problem above arises if I try and compile

I've still got the option of setting up an ADFS image to use in VA or
working out how to make WinEd cross-compile (and hopefully work with
Sourcery as well)...
