The main purpose of the release is not to match 6.6 libraries, but to
fix a few bugs in Hugs, specifically the last release of Windows and
Hugs didn't have all the libraries working properly due to a few bugs
in the base libraries at that time. There are also a few bugs fixed in
WinHugs, and a few makefile issues ironed out, I think.

And if the 6.6 libraries change much at this stage, thats a bad sign!

(Of course, once your libraries stuff is all finished, compilers may
never release with a set of libraries again :) )
