No, but the assumption is that implementations will take steps to
compute this truename, which might result in errors, and it is not
portable to assume otherwise.

The whole point is that it has the #+ for each and every of the 9
active implementations plus 6 more, so you don't have to. (And yes
there might be bugs or missing #+'es, but at least they only have to
be fixed in one place.) Alternatively, there's IOLib.
