I would say it would be cleaner to keep the 2 changes separated (a
change that affects all platforms hidden in a platform specific one
might be confusing to someone looking at the history of changes). But I
don't really have a strong opinion either so I'll let those who would do
the extra sponsoring work decide. Vladimir, what do you think?
