OK, I just like the idea, have tried it successfully (with far fewer
target systems) and hoped it would be doable.

Actually I meant to use a specific library for each operating system,
so there would be several libraries with no #ifdef's in any of them.
This is probably just a case of personal taste. I prefer several
libraries, others prefer serveral #ifdef's.
