Old unmaintaned code is usually a source of headaches, because you might have multiple libraries that have been updated since, in addition to the language itself.

But you might get lucky :)

Fortunately, it's wholly unused code: the project in question was me attempting to merge (and then deprecate) two, platform-specific solutions with a cross-platform solution. Since it blew up when I tried to run it on Windows (and the platform-specific ones were still serviceable) and it was more a "for me" project than customer-demanded, it got shoved to the bottom of the priority pile. In truth, it was one of those "it's dead at work, lemme dork around and see if I can spiff some things" kind of project.

Maybe as we hire more dev-staff, I'll actually be allocated time to revisit some of my earlier "get it the hell out the door" and some of my "this woulda been a good idea to implement" tools.
