Is there going to be a target date for this to happen?

I just found that proftpd corrupts the wtmp beyond all recognition, as
far as "last" is concerned, when compiled for libc6.  Is this a Bug in
proftpd or in every other package on the system?  :-)

Am I correct in thinking the major players to be synchronized here are
shellutils (who), sysvinit (last), netstd (rsh), login, ppp, procps,
wu-ftpd, and ssh?
