Kind of... it's actually just a very useful open source class library that
I'm trying to help make as cross platform as possible. So far CygWin is the
only platform that it looks like may be very difficult to support (MSC, egcs
on Linux x86/Alpha, Borland, Watcom are all reasonably doable) without
having to work around a lot of issues.
