In this form, I think the code is now simple, clean, and correct. The
only thing I'd still like to check on is whether it's been proposed to
glibc and whether we can possibly get them on board with providing a
compatible function. While I think it's unlikely that there could be
any incompatibilities in such a simple function, I'd like to foster
the kind of cooperation on adding new interfaces like this that
unifies APIs rather than having each system go their own way and just
add things without consideration for furthering the goals of
compatibility and standardization.

Has anyone contacted the glibc folks yet? If not, would you like me to
do so?
