BTW: how will *.sh be used on windows?
If never seen that running there ;-)

So, if a binary must run on all platforms,
a script must also.

If there is a distinction between these OS's,
using different installation tools, then
it should also be possible to use binaries,
created from same source, compiled to native
code for those platforms... ?!
