  Hmm... OK.

  I'll take a look.

  It may be possible.

  Arran did a bunch of fixes for 3.0, so that the installed header files
now have *none* of the HAVE_* stuff.  That makes it much easier to
create development headers.

  I'm not sure how easy this is for 2.2.  I'd prefer to keep that code
as stable as possible.
