    @dracos Quite possible. But it’s so hard to work out where. So many extra things to install. Anyway, thanks for sympathy :)

    @dracos It’s so tricksy I’d be very wary of using it in a publicly shared project unless it was really, really beneficial. Such a hurdle.

    @dracos Yeah. I’m sure it’s great when it works. But I’ve spent days trying to make it work (now and a few months ago).
