If the new native layer code turns out to be something that does more harm then good, then it should be either autoconfiscated, to save what makes sense saving, or reverted and presumably gradually rewritten to remove the macros for good. I am not sure if it's too early to tell, I have not looked at the rewrite in past week myself.

I doubt that will change much for Darwin, either way, since Darwin is different enough from Linux to trigger portability issues. The same would be the case if GNU Classpath had more developers using Cygwin, which also gets regularly broken, in my experience, and will get regularly broken in the future no matter what approach to portability layers we take.

Darwin is that much different than most *BSD's. Now the macro stuff makes things un-debuggable. I would recommend using static (inline) functions. Just using "#if HAVE_" instead and then having different files duplicating the stuff over and over again would be no more. There is already enough
duplicated code, why add more even in the same project.
