I don't think copying would be all that bad in this situation. While it
would make sense for the BSD systems to share, I don't see the gain in
trying to force Linux emulation to share the same code. It is not a large
or frequently updated section of code and there are a number of
Also, I think it would be better to share by inline functions rather
than messy #includes. inline is now a standard C keyword and thanks to
C++ is almost certainly supported by every compiler that is interesting.
