I fully agree, especially considering that EGLIBC want to be more
"open" in comparison to glibc (or better, its maintainer).
Don't do the same errors as glibc!
BTW, IMHO an announcement in d-d-d should be made. Normally a change
of system libraries has huge impact on maintainer and user
(and still on our nightmares), so an assuring mail
would good. (and also to have better references to media.
The auriel blog has too much personal attack).
