No, LFN on W2K/XP still have path length limits on the short name
equivalents. It shows how it works under the hood ...
There is code in DJGPP to work with this - but you must use relative
paths instead of absolute paths when deep in the directory structure.

But if you add new features you must document them... Suppose someone
was calling the old program incorrectly with a command argument which
was ignored. New one behaves differently.
So back to main(void) - or write usage documentation. If a new
feature is worth adding it's worth documenting.

I think the last block should be handled by manual edits, especially
since it may have modifications copyright DJGPP. There probably
should be a slightly different header to show this.
