Yes, and I already had made extra-crunchy hacks in GridFlow so that it can 
be binary-compatible with both Vanilla and Extended while doing m_imp.h 
hacks. This was because Extended introduced the quite unnecessary 
m_blobmethod field.

So, I'd have to do another hack like that (but easier) to support L2Ork. 
I'm not interested in distributing more binaries, so either Ivica 
distributes his own GridFlow binaries, or preferably, I would have some 
code to auto-detect L2Ork and act accordingly.

Coïncidentally, both binary-compat problems have to do with (different 
parts of) the comment-inlet hack used in the GFDP helpfile «template».

There are similar binary-compat problems trying to deal with multiple 
versions of Extended because GridFlow also links to GEM, which comes in 
multiple binary-incompatible versions depending on the version of 

GF supports 3 different ABIs of GEM, but now there's a new ABI that it 
isn't compatible with yet. It's the 3rd different GEM ABI to be labelled 
«0.93» so far. (but I don't remember which versions of GEM are bundled 
with Extended).
