I'm only sometimes a bit suspect when one particular implementation is
used as a general API.
I hate it when an API is modified only by doing something like
prepending "rtems_" to the front of it (or by replacing "umon_" with
"rtems_"). If, for example, the uMON API is perfectly adequate for
what is needed now and in the foreseeable future and if it is used on
the majority of the boards using such a facility then go ahead and
standardize on it.
I'm not saying this is the case, you have to use your good judgement,
but I've seen too many examples of mulltiplying APIs for no good
reason not to point this out.
