I think the comment at the top of the and to be a 
little confusing:

   All Winapi related stuff goes here.
   This file is used by both LCLIntf.pas and InterfaceBase.pp
   If a procedure is platform dependent then it should have the 
following tail:
     {$IFDEF IF_BASE_MEMBER}virtual;{$ENDIF}
   If a procedure isn't platform dependent, it is no part of 
InterfaseBase and
   should be surrounded by:
       procedure MyProc;

AFAIK, those ifdefs don't have anything to do with platform dependency, 
just so that they can be included within a class and declared as a 
global procedure by using the same inc file. Both files should be 
platform independant, no? Ie. functionality provided by interface should 
be the same for all platforms.
