Yeah, but do we do it before 1.3 goes into beta? I think we ought to,
but there was no reply to a recent message when I asked this question (and
showed an example of how the abstraction could work).

There is also the issue that we have abstracted the major platforms
(Win32, OS/2, Unix) into src/os/*, but somewhat inconsistently the
variations of these platforms are still defined within src/core (i.e. in
src/core/conf.h). It might make sense to move src/core/conf to
os/unix/os.h (and move the the OS/2 and Win32 bits from conf.h to
os/{win32,emx}/os.h). *Then* we can start throwing the new #defines into
the relevant os.h, and where necessary abstracting functions in os/*/os.c
such as ap_is_path_absolute(), etc.
