Subject: Draft: musl promo materials

Hi all,
Here's a quick draft (and request for input/suggestions) of
points/highlights about musl to eventually be incorporated into the
website and other opportunities to promote musl. With
embedded-relevant ports getting integrated now, I'm thinking this sort
of thing will also be useful for sending announcements to relevant
mailing lists, etc. Anything big I'm missing?

----------------------------------------------------------------------

Consistent quality and implementation behavior from tiny embedded
systems to full servers.

Minimal machine-specific code, meaning less chance of breakage on
minority architectures and better success with "write once run
everywhere" development.

Realtime-quality robustness. No unnecessary dynamic allocation. No
unrecoverable late failures. No lazy binding or lazy allocation.

MIT license.

Full math library with a focus on correctness. Exact and
correctly-rounded conversion between binary floating point and decimal
strings.

Reentrancy, thread-safety, and async-signal safety well beyond the
requirements of POSIX. Even snprintf and dprintf are fully reentrant
and async-signal-safe.

Highly resource-efficient POSIX threads implementation, making
multi-threaded application design viable even for memory-constrained
systems.
