That's perfectly true if the question is whether such a wrapper
should be created, but...

Portability is important for deciding whether to include such a wrapper
in Boost. From the requirements:
"A library's interface must portable.... If a portable implementation is
not possible, non-portable constructions are acceptable /if reasonably
easy to port to other environments/..." [emphasis mine]
