If "we" say that we want to check if they still install that will probably
fail since at time of woody release everybody will either have forgotten
about this or will not care anymore (I probably will fall into both

In case we really want this to be done we should ask the persons who actually
need libc5 for something to check that. Perhaps we should make a list of 
who needs libc5 and agrees to help and mail them just before woody is



PS: Thanks, Marcus, for your good work in maintaining libc5.
