I got a bit lost whether we are still going to add this API or not :)  But for what it's worth, as far as I can see now, this API is fine from an OS X point of view.  Especially with the two "conditionals" at the end of the function description there is likely enough room to do what is best suited for a given platform or to emulate the pieces that are required.
