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? Rich
