Sorry, wtf?  I have a *responsibility* to design software for a
miserably poorly-designed God-awful platform I'd have to pay *extra*
for, and even then couldn't get source to or *fix* if I found a bug?
No.  You don't control me, to the best of my knowledge you haven't done
squat for me, and by trying to force me to develop to *that* platform
you are actively attempting to harm me.
