    I think at some point the in_wma.dll didn't strongly validate the output plug-in being used, which was later corrected... but I don't know anything about gen_wmarip.dll.

    Hmm slow drawing performance of various nested NSViews was one hurdle... though it has thankfully gotten faster with recent OS X versions. The hardest part, though, was getting a working system with which to test... It is very hard to keep writing code without testing it.

    Yeah that demo is great, so funny how people go retro. If you could send it back in time you'd be a total GOD (though I suppose that guy is still a CGA god). Also 8088 Corruption is pretty solid.
