If only so you have a context for "ok, what do these NOT cover". There's an existing "musl vs uClibc" page but we might want a sentence or two on "musl: obviously the best", "uClibc: tried really hard but buildroot squished it in 2005 and it never recovered". "dietlibc: widely mocked for not-a-but-thats-a-feature disease", "klibc: official libc of the postminimalist art movement".) "There's always room for dropbear". And polarssl, and so on. I know we discussed more stuff (rxvt, xcfe and lxde...) Rob
