Portability works - there is only one real tweak - menus need to be build

have your menus look & feel 'native', you really have to have
platform-specific menus.

This is unfortunate. Is it really impossible to define the menu in a useful way for both (all) platforms by attaching some information to the menu tags or using abstract tags (like copy-menu) ?

BTW: Mozilla uses "overlays" to do things like this. You define a common UI for all platforms and then apply an "overlay" which can redefine things, add/remove things, etc.
