I am trying to find time to make certain other changes to Owl (such as
for specific issues reported by users - mostly off-list to me,
unfortunately).  If I manage to do that soon enough, then I'd rather not
add extra changes to this same pool - that is, your changes related to
new glibc should better be postponed until after the next set of ISOs.

However, if I fail to find time for that this week anyway, then I'll ask
you to go ahead and commit the glibc-related changes - and I'll work on
more changes at once later.

Summary: please hold these for now.  But you may, of course, post them
in here for discussion - if you feel that any discussion might be needed.

Thanks,

Alexander
