comment What makes a program cross-platform or not?
Surely this overstates the case? I know that more esoteric C++ code may run into various compiler bugs in older or lower-quality compilers, but any reasonably standards-conforming compiler should going to handle things like overloading and name lookup the same. The Standard library provides I/O, and (starting with C++11) threading, and filesystem support is being standardized.

comment Does internal state “leak” when it influences externally-visible behavior?
@DeadMG - Understood, but even if I'm not depending on specific return values, I expect code to be deterministic: to always return the same output given the same state and the same input. I control the input, and const should describe the logical state, so barring any external I/O, global variables, etc., I believe varying outputs while const would be a mistake.
