I doubt that.  At least my personal experience is different: I know
almost nothing about X, but have no problem hacking the non-X parts of
Emacs, even where they are Posix specific.  It's no accident that the
first build of Emacs that supported bidi was a GNU/Linux TTY build.

Refactoring of Windows code is done by the maintainers of the Windows
port.  Most of the other maintainers should probably use hideif or
some such to remove the Windows code from sight.

No, this thread was triggered by an attempt to ignore Windows-specific
aspects of networking and signals, not by some #ifdef'ed code.
