Yes, uwoody rock big time. The only question is, how will it handle the
next uclibc version? From what I have gathered, uclibc will break binary
compatability with one of their next releases and as far as I can figure
that out[1] this means that the whole system has to be bootstrapped
again, doesn't it?

[1] and that means I'm probably wrong ;)
