Its not something that they can reasonably solve without a complete model
change, and then I suspect that they would still run into the fundamental
problem that Visual Studio itself will not open the same file twice, in the
context of two different projects. That's the infamous "This file is open
in another project" error.
These problems are just indicative of the fact that this solution is
totally ad hoc. There is a way to do target specific programming in an OO
language, and it is shared libraries with platform specific code in
platform specific libraries. The problem is that Microsoft totally fucked
us over by making it so that projects cannot target multiple platforms.
Since its impossible to do, people then figure, "Well if I'm fucked anyway,
I might as well start doing other things like using partial classes and #if
to include platform specific code". This is not sound.
