I was just hesitant to write POSIX as Im pretty sure we are using functionality
beyond that (and that works because a lot of things work on BSD/OSX too that
arent strictly POSIX). Restricting ourselves to POSIX purity just for the
standards sake, rather than that "it should work on all platforms" seem like a
mostly futile endevour to me.
