Really?  How are you going to test Windows-specific (or any-other-
platform-but-yours-specific) code?  How about WORDS_BIGENDIAN code,
or code that is sensitive to alignment rules?  Or code that breaks
in locales you haven't got, or depends on compile options you don't

check-world isn't a magic bullet.
