It shouldn't have hacks, but I don't think it's unreasonable to use
platform-specific services for things that don't have widely accepted

What really matters is that the platform-specific bits need to be small
and well isolated, that's why we'd want others dlls to use schannel
instead of going straight to OS libraries for instance. But having a
small chunk of platform-specific code inside schannel with a clean
interface doesn't seem problematic to me.
