Has anybody actually tried mailing the kernel developers at Sun,IBM,and
HP? With the current push to use Linux at least two of these companies
you would think they would be open to change some of the behaviors. Or
barring that propose it as a POSIX standard.

Still, you don't really want GNOME to act differently internally on one OS
and another. It would be a support confusion. If you do, you should put
out a caveat document or something for each OS so that people understand
that there are differences running GNOME on one OS over another.
