I see that work on a GNU libc port has gone quite hard, and you consider
now to give it up to start a BSD libc port.
If you have time or resource limitations to do anything now, that's fine;
and if you think working on a BSD libc port is better, that's fine too, but
please don't hide your work on the GNU libc port because someone else might
be willing to take it on.
