Happy to help, these are fun distractions (I wish they were easier to find).

Thanks! Yes, whdload does indeed sound interesting and a good place to gather fixes/patches. I took a quick look but it seems the 'slaves' are proprietory and not open(?) Perhaps I misunderstand, but if true that seems like madness (you have to reverse patches to add patches?!)... But *shrug* - they are more than welcome to take this too

I wrote a cmp decompressor to help with analysis of the bytecode language. So I was/am familiar with the alg used (another lz variant), just have to do the inverse when I get some time. No issues doing so - it's all part of the fun for me - but more than happy for you/others to on-the-fly patch
