thank you for your feedback.
The reason for putting !Scrap in a Ramdisk seems to be some
performance benefit for certain workloads or use cases. !MiscSetup
makes this easy by copying !Scrap automatically during boot.
I didn't use this setup myself, but for some people it seems to be an
issue, and I thought that this might be a good start to become more
familiar with RISC OS programming.

The patch as sumbitted is also broken, as it will cause RUfl to
I rewrote the patch to reflect your suggestions. It checks if
Cache$Dir is set and either sets NetSurf$RUflCacheDir to
<Wimp$ScrapDir> or <Cache$Dir>.NetSurf
rufl_internal.h is patched to make use of <NetSurf$RUflCacheDir> and
hardcodes RUfl_Cache as filename.
