It's seems fair, at least, but I haven't tested it too much, honestly. It's supposedly "smaller and faster but no paging, no virtual memory, and worse debugging support (??)", etc. Jukemp3 uses its stub version (but I can't think of too many other apps that do). Usually, you'll just want to leave out any DPMI provider since most people have CWSDPMI, Windows, DOSEMU, etc. these days. But it's a nice alternative to have.

Still, in order to "not be redundant", I have put it on my FreeDOS disk #2 and kept CWSDPMI on disk #1 (although the older online version only has STUBIT from WDOSX, which wastes more space and is harder to use than PMODETSR and CWSTUB).

Know your limits.h
