In that case you are not reinventing an OS-provided wheel. Your case in point
has nothing to do with my point.

I am talking about the case where a cross-platform library uses non-native
implementation of facilities that exist natively, and does so in a way that is
not compatible (in terms of user experience) with the native facility. Case in
point: text edit fields in Mozilla do not behave the same as text edit fields in
every other Mac app.
