   [ after writing this, I notice that bfox didn't suggest that it had to
     be written for Unix.  I didn't see a subtle way to acknowledge that
     assumption, hence this crude note.  :)  -russ ]

I didn't specify which operating system the code should be written
for, just as Mr. Barthomelew didn't specify which operating system he
would be running the code on.

In fact, I don't care which OS the program works on.  My point was
that freed software is freed, and that whatever system that the
software should run on is irrelevant.
