Surely there is also the type that are writing *for others*, and want
the program to be both well-behaved and work on any Unix-like OS?

Those people would be well served by a putative “service” interface.
I would welcome such a PEP from you, since you seem to have fairly
solid ideas of what it should look like.

It's a bit of a stretch to go from “designed to work on any Unix-like
OS” to “non-portable”.
