Hello James,

you're totally right for the general case.
But my problem is that my game works nicely right now on Windows.
I want to add Mac OSX support for online, but if it comes with a cost 
of performance on the Windows side, my Windows user will crucify 
me... :-S (and nearly 90% of my users are on Windows)
So I have to think about performance 1st, to be sure I can take the ENet road.

Making the online mode platform dependant is also not a solution, 
because there are not enough Mac OSX users to make a lively online mode.
