haha, no. I was more refering to the fact that i'm pretty sure no one 
_wants_ utmp. It's just that you need it around for compiling code from

But yeah, dropping in glibc seems like more work then just implementing 
it.

How does that work with sysvinit? And a couple of utils are going to be 
broken too. hence i was wondering about an approach to get these working 
without actually having to have that stone age functionality in musl 
itself.
