You're right, it can. The product the company I work for produces is a
shared library, and I'm just looking into and making sure that our
.dll is usable in as many was by as many platforms as possible. If a
customer wants to link statically, I'd like to be able to have that

FWIW, I've just gone through and updated our .pas/.h headers to
interface with our .so/.dll to use cdecl in both UNIX and Windows and
it seems to work fine.
