Yup. It is quite valid to simply say, "it will get automatically set on Unix
unless/until somebody figures out the Right Behavior(tm) for Windows and
gets the code update."

IOW, we get better functionality [on Unix] today, and we have a possibility
in the future for other platforms (essentially, a framework for Windows,
Mac, whatever, to add specific code).
