Let me rephrase the question: are you aware of any other specific platforms which need to solve this problem? :-)
MacOS Classic? I don't remember how stdio worked in those environments. Bare metal OS with a console on a medium which will be reset on exit()? (wait, how did you get an argv? Fix your C library.) General UEFI suckage? (What, as opposed to the *specific* suckage per BIOS vendor?) DECwindows on VMS?
I have the CDE books somewhere around here, but I have a strict fee-only policy for thinking about CDE.
