D - vsnprintf aliases

Hi -

Looking through phobos' std.c.stdio I see the following:

version (Win32)
{
// ... snip ...
int  _vsnprintf(char *,size_t,char *,va_list);
}
version (GNU)
{
// ... snip ...
alias gcc.config.Cvsnprintf vsnprintf;
alias gcc.config.Cvsnprintf _vsnprintf;
}
else version (linux)
{
// ... snip ...
int  vsnprintf(char *,size_t,char *,va_list);
}

Shouldn't the linux version have:

alias _vsnprintf vsnprintf

and the windows version have:

alias vsnprintf _vsnprintf

or something more consistent like one virtual vsnprintf that maps to the correct
version (e.g. to _vsnprintf on windows)?  

Perhaps I am missing something.

Thanks!

Nevermind - I see that the vsnprintf variations must be used differently from
one another.  phobos' std.outbuffer shows how to use all the vsnprintf versions
out there.  BTW the aliases I proposed were of course backwards.  Back to my
cave...
