It should already be feature-complete for C99, except possibly some
bugs in the time stuff I want to overhaul. There are a few things
missing for POSIX (some new strftime field width stuff comes to mind),
but not much; probably a few more small details for XSI option in the
way of interfaces that nobody uses, like encrypt(). And some things
missing for C11, of course.

Great! Yes, this sounds like a good target version for you, especially
since I'm hoping to swat a lot more bugs by then (see the hybrid audit
item above). It should also give us plenty of time to resolve any
issues you encounter using musl with aboriginal between then and musl
1.0 so that everything is really polished when we get to 1.0.
