We have specific directives based on os, I had an idea that you could
say something like:
"not-available" : "*"
But it still tries to find this package even on non-windows OSes, so
that doesn't work. This still wouldn't prevent you from adding the
dependency on your non-supported OS in the first place, but I'm not sure
that's a good UX, since someone might add a dependency for a specific
OS, even when not on that OS.
You could possibly create little stub packages for all OSes to be
excluded, like `exclude-os:windows`, and then you could add those
dependencies to non-windows libraries. Yes, it would download those
stubs once, but would fail to build on the "wrong" OS.
I think your best bet is to version the whole library out, and let them
read the static assert message from compiling against your library.
