These should be portable. They are specified in the Single Unix
Specification (back in version 2, so they have been there for a while).
If we come across a system that does not support them for some reason,
then that system should get a special workaround, since it is arguably
broken. Defaulting to things that are specified in SUS is pretty safe,
in general.
