Yes, we do state in the book preface that our examples are Unix-based.  But
the authors agree that this doesn't mean we can't use constructs that work
on Windows, too, where they exist.  The more widely useful the example, the
better, so long as readability isn't sacrificed.

Patch applied.  Thanks, Ryan.
