POSIX was created to make it easier to write portable apps. When one,
knowingly, writes a non-portable app, and then says "hey, but it's
POSIX compliant", one is missing the point. POSIX is a means to an
end, not an end in itself. Basically, the point of the discussion is
the same as the point of POSIX itself: portability.

Greetings, Sander.
