Thanks for the link. I'd like to take a look at this program, and
possibly suggest some other features that could be added to it.
However, I don't think it helps with the issue at hand. As long as
/lib/ is a symlink to musl, no attempt to load
glibc will be made. The problem is that, while musl largely strives
for binary compatibility, there are a few places where it's difficult
or impossible without additional patch-ups that aren't yet done.

I'm not clear on whether any of the issues affect Opera, but for such
a large program I'd be fairly surprised if they don't (albeit happily
surprised, of course).
