I'm pretty sure I've said this before, but here I go again... I think the C
library is one of the features Debian people would want to use Debian */*BSD
for, due to it's various real or perceived advantages. I'd bet that 90% of the
people screaming at you to use glibc are going to go on using just Debian
GNU/Linux either way...
