Well, people are free to do whatever they want with your library...

Responding to "it just makes no sense to worry about ARM for MMU compatibility": Generally in a library, there's no need for specific "ARM-without-MMU" support. Assuming it works effortlessly on ARM (which it should these days), it would be just about the MMU, independent of CPU architecture. Which most things do fine, and a few need small changes.
That's fine. If your library is used on some exotic platform (be it Windows, VMS or ARM without MMU) then I see no problem with it. But if you start changing everything from the start to support them... that's another thing.
