I was a bit unclear, sorry.  I make some edits, then build for multiple 
platforms (Mac, Android and HTML). Then I want to test each of those 
platforms out, perhaps multiple times. Maybe all it needs is a "Retest" 
button (or "cmd+Test") to re-use the most-recently-built for the 
selected test target.
>> You said "[HTTPd library] ...  now that we have one included in the IDE we ...". So is it the intention that this library is only available in the IDE, and won't be available for inclusion in a standalone, or for use from LCServer ?  (I can't see it in the list of inclusions in the SB, unlike diff, getopt, etc. - though that list is getting long enough that scrolling through it to see if something is there or not is becoming  inexact).

I don't see it (or don't recognize it). (dp8 Indy, OSX)
