not at all, but i wonder if glibs util function could be combined with 
musl, for people who want to kill zombies once at a time rather then all

I remember from a security workshop, that someone just ended up 
patching utmp _out_ of libc because it seemed unfeasible to fix all of 
the code from last century.
Libutil doesn't seem to provide much more then that. Sounds like a 
decent abstraction of "crap" once could reuse?
