I'm sure when you do such changes, you
grep (or otherwise search) the whole tree for relevant places

No, I hardly ever do that.

Then please start doing that from now on.

I'd rather not. If someone else wants to search other modules for opportunities to make similar changes, that's obviously fine, but's it's not at all necessary. Work like this should belong to the modules in question; among other things, it is more efficiently done by people who care about and are expert in those modules.

Ideally, the MS-Windows code would be a completely separate module

That's a completely separate issue, unrelated to the issue at hand.

No, the issues are related. If the modules in question were completely independent, this thread would not have come up.
