judging from what the intended purpose of this lib would be, i think a
name like 'libbrokenos' would make more sense. it does not seem to be
intended as a general os support library (which would be bad imo -- we
have too much crap like that in other apps already) but as a
collection of workarounds for broken operating systems missing
important (?) functionality.
