I'm not saying you need to wait, just that you should be aware of past
discussion of the topic, and if you want to propose patches they
should either follow the behavior outlined before or come with
discussion of why you think a different behavior is more appropriate.

I don't think "it crashes on glibc" is a good justification for
anything. Rather there should probably be UX discussions of what
different choices mean for different poor-configuration situations
that are likely to arise in the wild (from things like LC_* getting
copied over ssh).
