    Please always put a repair option in an SDK

    I am having a problem in the S60 3rd ed MR sdk (some font apparently, given the stack dump). Unfortunately repairing this SDK doesn't work because it doesn't have a repair option. Installing the SDK installs a fresh copy with some counter tuecked at the end.

    I prefer to have each sdk to have a repair option, as this takes much less time than uninstalling an SDK, reinstalling it, fixing epoc.ini and recompiling all the code.
    It would have been nice too if the S60 3rd ed MR SDK had was put in the application list. Now it isn't there, probably because installing another SDK has overwritten it's entry.

    It is a good practice backing up the epoc32 folder of the SDK immediately after install. Replacing epoc32 with a clean copy is far better than any clean/reallyclean, and obviously fixes mistakenly removed/corrupted files.
