The same answer applies. A provision that would block Win32 extensions would
also block Linux, BSD, OSX, Solaris, GNU and other extensions. The practical
effect would be a bland generic software that no one would want. Remember,
there are extensions in everything from libc to the bourne shell. Depending
on the wording of the license, even POSIX might not be generic enough.
