I think it's a chicken and egg argument. Now that we are getting close we
have a better idea of what needs to be wrapped in port-specific modules
etc. (Bruce's count was slightly over - I ran a slightly more restrictive
search and found 193 occurences of #ifdef WIN32 and friends.)

I'll revisit some of my contributed code and see what can be eliminated.
