Is windows compatibility part of the scope of your project? I don't mean
a windows implementation, just making sure that the interface you
develop isn't going to painful to interface to Windows at some future
time. I find some frustrations in the existing interfaces (block,
network) in that they were written with Linux in mind and can be a
little painful to interface to Linux.
