Agreed on all points.  I don't know how quickly it can happen, but a 
libc-6.1 update for stable on Alpha needs to be released ASAP.  Is there
anything an end-user like me can do to help that process along?  If
nothing else, I'll happily vouch for the basic usability of any of the
unstable/experimental libc-6.1 releases mentioned in this discussion.
