The "support" layer in Pnet was designed so that it could be
replaced with any other system interface.  If someone wants
to build "support" on top of Common C++, then more power
to them.

The real issue is dependencies: bringing in all of Common C++
into pnet to get a handful of utility libraries doesn't seem
worth the effort.  If we ever get into supporting PDA's and
such, then the dependencies must be kept to a minimum.
