Whenever I see phrases like that, the alarm bells in my head marked
'embrace and extend' start ringing..  :-(

Please remember, Linux is just a subset of the whole Unix world (OK, this
isn't *pedantically* correct), and leafnode does run on a fair number
of Unixen..

For example, I'm running it under FreeBSD..

Let's not start doing anything that reduces the portability of code

The Unix world has a great tradition of sharing code between the differnent
variants, let's keep it that way :-)
