In general, I don't find it sufficient to just rely upon reading
header files, especially when the APIs are spread across multiple
recursive #includes and/or may be a macro on some implementations
and a function on others.

This is also true on other UNIX-like platforms such as Darwin & Linux,
and in C++ (STL headers, anyone?)
