We've been gradually fixing this. The platform-independent  
CanvasRenderingContext2D should be built on top of features in the  
platform-specific GraphicsContext class.

The PLATFORM ifdefs in that file are all due to the fact that this  
project hasn't been completed.

An example of a function where we have completed the work is  
CanvasRenderingContext2D::strokeRect(). An example of a function where  
we have not yet done the work is CanvasRenderingContext2D::fill().  
Eventually we'll finish the job and CanvasRenderingContext2D will not  
have any PLATFORM in it any more.
