 I would suggest pretending that one has semaphores first with some nice little abstraction and then implementing them in the best way the platform has to offer.

How about we introduce functions called acquire_semaphore() and release_semaphore()? Oh, wait, we did.

Platforms without semaphores might use a file and locking or if that doesn't work then they can't implement the feature and you configure it out.

This kind of (re)invention is not known to be needed at this time. I have the impression Eli has the Windows port in hand, he's just skeptical about a few details. And what's there now is already the LCD for most other platforms as far as I know.
