I don't know what their expectation is but as the builds aren't 
integrated then I would expect at least some mix 'n match. Mandy might 
have more context. I think (but I'm not certain) that FX has been using 
the PlatformLogger for performance/startup reasons but I'm not certain 
if there is an "agreement" to provide both source and binary 
compatibility going forward.
