We control the whole thing, we don't port Haiku to somewhere else, and 
even if, it would be only a minor problem in C++ code anyway - 
actually, only macros are problematic. But our naming conventions for 
those are different anyway (uppercase).
Also, there are no private but publically available macros.

IOW we can safely ignore that article.
