jess: Well, that should be the beauty of open source; the programmer who needs a particular SWI can simply add to the compatibility library. If they want to provide new native ROLF/Linux features, they can provide a library for applications which want to use it (and it may get picked up by other GNU users, if it's generally useful).

Using RISC OS modules would be possible, I suppose, it will just come down to whether anyone feels a strong enough desire for it (as with pretty much any feature).
