IMHO we should work against having dozens of odd specialized targets
that J Random Luser knows nothing about. If possible, we should just
make the -native target do the right things (unless it already does).
But -native is only supported in Linux so for non-linux atom targets
(what would that be IRL? Windows?) I'm all for adding it.
