They're low-priority because they're not affecting robustness or compatibility, mostly just performance and convenience. I'm just putting them down as a list here for the record and in case anybody wants to start a discussion off of them or propose other enhancements in the same category. - Reworking iconv (again), this time to use an internal temporary buffer for processing whole runs rather than character at a time. - Private-futex support in all synchronization primitives and internal locking. - Various malloc enhancement ideas for reducing fragmentation and/or increasing performance. - Converting regex engine to work on bytes instead of decoding each character to wchar_t. - Fixing vdso support. - Support for building libc itself with stack protector. - Resorting data/bss objects to drop the number of essential dirty pages for libc.so to a minimum.
