Point taken. I assume you are referring to
Here's original NSS module author Mark Kettenis <firstname.lastname@example.org>'s
release announcement in July 2000:
I guess we can hope that the current security incident will encourage
the glibc developers to consider adopting Kettenis's NSS code, as part
of a larger plan to (finally!) phase out the legacy BIND8 resolver code.
But that won't happen quickly, if at all, I fear.
