You can't have it both ways. Either your program *requires* the
new/unusual functionality exist on the system, in which case it will
never port to the systems that don't have it, or you'll have to
provde a custom implementation, in which case you have the multiple
implementations problem anyway.
The irony is that Bill Gates claims to be making a stable operating
system and Linus Torvalds claims to be trying to take over the
world. -- seen on the net
