But this is only relevant if you're not using a trampoline.  In that
case, you're system-specific anyway.  Moreover, the restriction does
not seem to hold for most modern Unixes, including recent versions of
(as verified by us) FreeBSD, Linux, Solaris, AIX, HP-UX, Irix, and
MacOS X.  In fact, I don't know a single current Unix version which
still has it.
