Hi,

Sorry for the late answer.

The idea of common-posix (or common-unix) was a way to identify which
code use the posix API, in the same logic than "common-x86". It would
help when porting on other environment.

But after thinking more about it, you are right, there is probably no
real advantage yet and, as we only support unix environment, we cannot
check that the separation would be correct.

Regards,
Olivier
