Strictly speaking, this works on Mac OS X/Carbon and Mac OS
Classic/Carbon builds, but doesn't work on Mac OS Classic/non-Carbon
build.  But I think it is OK to say "This also works on Mac OS"
because this distinction is too detailed to mention in
platform-independent sections and the Mac OS Classic/non-Carbon build
is really minor.
