Does Japheth's HDPMI implement the functions that CWSDPMI implements?
Yes, HDPMI implements DPMI 0.9 functions that CWSDPMI implements, and
also implements DPMI 1.0 functions.

Can Japheth's HDPMI replace CWSDPMI and will DJGPP applications
function correctly afterwards?  I haven't tried that.  So, I don't
know for sure.  However, the applications should function correctly
since DJGPP only needs a DPMI 0.9 compliant host.  HDPMI is one of many
DPMI 0.9 compliant hosts.  E.g., DJGPP applications execute correctly
in a console window for Windows 98/SE which is DPMI 0.9 compliant.

My personal experience is that DJGPP applications function correctly
with DOSBox.  However, I haven't compiled DJGPP applications while
executing DOSBox.  FYI, DOSBox has a DPMI 0.9 host, but IIRC, it's
disabled by default.  Maybe, there is an option to enable it?  I.e.,
you'll probably need CWSDPMI in the filesystem image or on the actual
system you boot with DOSBox.

If you're upset over excessive use of force by police, leave your
basketball court or football field, go down to your police station and
picket.  You can do that peacefully any day of the week without
disrespecting the American flag.
