i'm confused as to why people would even bother sharing code in 
the first place, more time is wasted on this thread than it would 
take to just reimplement in both toolkits.

shared code will just slow everyone down, it will make for
untested specifications and will just cause a thousand and 
one more conversations about toolkits in the end.  

so. why even bother? most of the code will end up in the 
wrapping of this low level stuff in higher level apis anyway
and if it doesn't, well, its proof that its not lowest common
denominator code.
