a4a5 is an Allegro 4 to Allegro 5 bridge library.

The idea of this library is to ease porting Allegro 4 programs to Allegro 5
by providing a thin bridge library. The way it is intended to work is that 
you link both Allegro 4 and Allegro 5 into your program, but use 
A4 only for software bitmap rendering, packfiles and other Allegro 4 specific
functionality. Drawing to the screen, etc is done with Allegro 5. What this 
library then does is to use A4 to provide certain conversions and services that 
allow you to keep on using the Allegro 4 API in part, but redirect the output
and receive the input through Allegro 5.
