No, I think I haven't explained myself clearly. Not being a required
platfom does not imply you cannot propose fixes for HP-UX,
as long as the lib author and the release manager agreee to commit
them. AFAIK, we're still open for fixes on any platform --so,
the "required platform" label is just of a seal of approval thing,
if you want to see it that way.
