Or it might help. If you have a compiler bug and you only use one platform 
and set of switches, it can be hard to identify as such. But if you have a 
system that works on several platforms and fails on one, you can put your 
finger on the platform, not the application, or at least a 
platform-specific bug in the app (eg. misuse of a pointer).
