I understand. I just thought calls named "_NSGetEnviron" and 
"exc_server" (those are the calls they refer to in the article) sounded 
like "get some environment variable" and some threading functions, so I 
thought it might be possible that the low-level implementations of some 
functions might use them without us being aware of it...

But if the likeliness of that happening is close to null, that's great.
