I detect the platform via the preprocessor, i.e.
boost/system/api_config.hpp. If you include boost.process without either
posix or windows, you'll get an error, saying you have a not supported
system api.

I'd consider this the right behaviour, since I cannot start any process.
Do you have any scenario in mind, where I might want to have a no-op?
