Based on what I see:


I would assume that most of the code is common (in terms of files),
and at compile time the sources are re-built with different defines.

Thus I think that when one would modify the code, in large part the
code is common, and where it isn't at least the "switch" is visible in
there.  Therefore I'm confident that the `fileserver` is still a
viable solution.  :)
