Bikeshedding time!

I would like to see the above three emphasized.  Your libc is only 
slightly less important than your kernel, but this is certainly not the 
case with chatter in the wild.  It would be nice to have a site which 
spells out what libc is or should be.  And I would like to be able to 
use the site to learn stuff.

I would not make = musl but use the above to justify/explain 
musl for the same reason that = linux kernel is pretentious.
