Pardon me if I try to clarify: By "implementation" you probably mean
the compiler headers, like <stdio.h>, including POSIX headers like
<sys/types.h>, and possibly also including the Windows API headers.

Max was talking about setup.exe and/or similar stuff, which is
user-level, non-"implementation" code AFAICS.
Or I may be missing something ...
