It would be great to have a common configuration filter for Unix-like (i.e. POSIX-compliant to certain degree) OSes, e.g. configuration "unix" or configuration "posix". Given the list of currently supported platforms, it would be probably equivalent to "not windows", however assumption that everything except Windows is POSIX doesn't feel right.

Discussion

  • Maybe we should add internal table e.g config.aliases = { "posix" = { "linux", "bsd", "macosx", "solaris" }, however I'm not sure how expressions like "posix not solaris" should be handled
