While Unix did win, that doesn't mean that Unix's names won. It's Unix's features that won. So it's reasonable to provide certain operations, but implementing them in terms of (system "unix-command-name ...") is not.

Of course, I use Mac OS X, so it's not like I'm adversely impacted. But the point still stands.
