Subject: machine() vs .Platform$OS.type

    o .Platform$OS.type is standardized to be `unix', `mac' or
`windows'

However, machine() still returns "Unix" rather than "unix". (I'm not
sure what it returns on other platforms. Should I be thinking of
machine() as standardized already, or is .Platform$OS.type the preferred
standard way to check this?
