I like the idea of NP additions help us here. We already have 

A user knows their code will not be portable under the POSIX standard 
when using 'pthread_*_np' calls and using the Classic is not portable 
anyway so there is real difference with portability. At least with just 
one API in use there is the ability to reduce the code in the final 
image by limiting the APIs linked in.
