We had the same concern about Platform and this is why we changed/ 
renamed/moved/refactored Platform and wtf files to create Origyn Web  
Browser and its abstraction layer. It has been ported to AmigaOS to  
become the official AmigaOS4 Browser, and some companies are currently  
working with us on Nucleus, QNX and OS21 and also on top of high-level  
abstracted (proprietary) middlewares.
