NSPR is the Netscape Portable Runtime, a portable library for low-level
system access. Gives access to threads, files, dynamic library loading

I have a simple policy (and also insufficient by itself, but is anything
that easy? :-) ), which consist of taking care at what I am #including

being somewhat standard. unistd.h does pass if you aim for Unixy
targets, but not if you aim for across the board.
