Since the M$ compiler doesn't so far as I know allow global register
variables I doubt it would work. I suspect that using the globals struct
_without_  having a global register to point to it would actually slow
down the ARM based winCE machines - it certainly did on my Acorn. But
there's nothing except a little work and a conversation with me stopping
anyone from trying it out. It was worth 20+% on Acorn.
