I like that approach. Hopefully people with knowledge of specific build
systems can help by setting up the project files so the non-violating
source code can start the migration.

One suggestion when approaching this task was to use the Platform namespace
for such code. This was already attempted in r104231[1] but that change
later got rolled out. Is anyone opposed to doing this?
