Agreed. I think we should definitely adopt the attitude that, wherever
possible, we should try and keep code and functionality common between the
versions, so that we don't waste time and effort, and so they can be as
similar as possible, and we shouldn't deliberately break one platform with
code written for another, but I don't think it's possible, or even
desirable, to maintain complete one-to-one feature lists between *any* two

Or consider that Win32 supports ISAPI extensions, and loading modules from
DLLs. Heck, Win32 does multithreading wheras Unix doesn't. That sounds
like a feature to me.
