    Great. There's a better way, but it is not necessary. Let Linux-specific
    applications use it for their benefit, but a portable application isn't
    going that way because it's too much effort. If a simpler interface that
    can be shared with half a dozen other system exists, the portable
    application will use that and ignore better interfaces.
