I certainly see your point of view. It seems that *most* of the
functionality for the iPhone works *only* on the iPhone, that of Android
*only* on Android, etc.
In the end, you have to special case the treatment for lots of things.
I don't know why it's been engineered the way it has. I'm sure there's
a reason, but I agree with you philosophically that the whole reason for
wanting to use a high-level language is to smooth over these sticking
points as much as possible.
That said, realistically, you /can/ get around it, just not as elegantly
as perhaps we'd like to.
