POSIX errno codes were what I meant, yes. On a POSIX implementation there
would be no mapping. On Win32, you can use the POSIX-like C RTL functions.
I suppose you can introduce integral constant aliases for the <cerrno>
macros but is it worth it? Aren't all caps identifiers starting with E
reserved for the implementation, anyway?
