POSIX is not "like" IEEE stuff, posix _IS_ IEEE stuff.  It is the IEEE
1003.* family of standards.

Thankfully, it's not actually _megabucks_, typically "just" a
hectobuck per standard, unless you can find somebody who's going to
one of the meetings and get them to give you the one half-off standard
that they're allowed to purchase (or something like that)...
