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.
