My code is under BSD license, so you're welcome to use it.
However, I'm not inclined to ship code for other platforms
in my program, simply because I don't have time to test or
maintain it.  I may refactor it a bit, though, so it would
be easier to extract the cross-platform parts.

If you choose to support Windows, you're opening a huge
can of worms, if you use a scripting language; you can't
guarantee Python or (ba)sh will be present.
