Yeah, shouldn't be a big problem.

Hmm - it would be a very minor cost to make it platform independent.  On
the flip side, it's not supposed to persist over shutdowns of Cyrus

Still, I would vote for fixing that too - might as well keep the
platform safeness.  Processor time is cheap compared to disk IO
at least in our setup.
