We do - but that doesn't mean we have to port glibc to get it, or that we
need to have it *right now* - we just need to have it before we're done,
and something that *works* right now. By my preference, something that can
be made to work to all of our requirements later, without a major rewrite.

I think this could be accomplished by porting init, rather than glibc, is
the point, and that the initial port could well be done as a partially
functional, but useable and extensible setup.
