I think the cleanest solution is to factor the OS-specific code into
separate modules with OS-independent interfaces and names, and pull in the
appropriate implementations at compile time by changing the module search
path. That way you avoid the syntactic and semantic ugliness of cpp as well
as most of the practical problems of a runtime test.
You can also use any two or all three of these techniques together.
