This is part of a problem I've seen too many times over the years; something needs a 'tweak' for platform A - change is made in the platform code. That leads to problems for platforms B & C, and changes are made in the image. We end up with a curious and impenetrable mix of image and platform code doing weird things... and years later no one can remember anything about it.
