We can help clean this up if it makes a real difference

iirc we renamed the files because of some problem with cmake - it was 
trying to compile those files instead of treating them like headers.

I forget why we did this tbh - I'll try to get an answer in case it

Not intentionally - We are using/testing this on Solaris, FBSD and Linux 
- We may add OSX/Win to that list soon, but I can't promise at this

NetBSD also has a "fork" I believe, but not sure if it's public/status
