Sorry it took me so long. Seaside works (did before), Monticello
crashes no more.
So I'd say it works for me so far.

There are of course a lot of plugins who don't work (cast from pointer
to integer of different size). Many of them I don't miss (graphic,
sound, ...). Among those I miss cUrl, could anybody get this to
compile? But UUID works.
