Sorry for not being clear: I meant 5 replacement header files that
contain @-tokens, not 5 supported target systems.

The systems we ostensibly support are POSIX/UNIX, Windows, VMS, MS-DOS
(?), and AmigaOS (?).  I don't know if anyone actually uses either of
the two latter platforms anymore, but the last time I asked about
ditching Amiga support (for example) there were people who objected. 
That was some years ago now though.  I've never been entirely clear on
the difference between the DOS and Windows ports.

Regarding your suggestion, that might work.  I'll look into it.
