I meant portability as a continuum, not as a binary.  Thus, an 
approach can be "more" portable.

My experience is that it is always possible to reuse *some* code in a 
port and it is always necessary to do some additional code.  The 
extent of code which does not have to be modified determines where an 
approach lies on the portability continuum.

Windows api is one of the least portable approaches available but 
that does not mean zero code re-use.
