Interesting proposition Guenter.  Maybe a stable and 'experimental' 
branch could help ease transitions in code additions.  Another idea 
might be to have a 'Core' Gem version that's cross-platform with 
extra extensions to accommodate differences and unique features for 
each OS.  That might alleviate some of our problems. The counterpoint 
is that it would mean more work for administrators and potential 
confusion for users.  Some thing to think about...
