*****

Can I simply remove the WIN-16 part?

*****

{
The WIN-NT port of NSPR takes advantage of some of the features of NT that are not available in WIN-95, such as fibers and asynch I/O.
The implementation is well suited for high performance application, such as a server, but clients may find the WIN-95 version more suited (and adequate) for interactive applications such as are prevalent on today's workstations.
}

Should Mozilla trunk continue to use the WIN-95 implementation "endlessly",
or could it start to look into switching to the WIN-NT one ?
