I thought Werner was ruling out this model, too. (He didn't mention
anything about frequency or location of ifdefs, just that they were
"generally unacceptable".) There certainly are other ways besides ifdefs
to to machine-dependent code, but they seem messier yet.

But if that's okay, then I misunderstood his meaning. Thanks.
