The single most valuable tool for software development is:

Instant access to the lines matching a pattern over the entire source
tree.  Keep one over the set of mailing list archives.

More valuable than meta-dot, maybe more valuable than the compiler.

I'm touched that you so accurately recall my final opinion on this subject.

The more practical part of my opinion is that I've never seen a project 
use a single consistent way of doing this, so I suspect this dialectic 
between function and platform is a force of nature - like the tides - and 
it ebbs and flows.  So yeah, go with the flow.

If you move things into the os.h files then you have layering issues as
some functions will require other functions that must already have been
included - even if these are platform independent.
