Subject: <fstab.h> / getfsent(3) and friends

Would a small module implementing <fstab.h> be accepted upstream into
musl?  I looked on the mailing list and wiki and didn't see anyone
asking this question before.


This header and API are used by at least:

- filelight (disk space usage tracker)

- K3b (KDE disc ripper)

- KDELibs 3.x, used by TDE (Trinity Desktop Environment, light Qt DE)

- MythTV and XBMC (media center/players)

- Pegasus (scientific computation management system by USC)


Since this is already implemented by glibc[1], FreeBSD[2], NetBSD[3],
OpenBSD[4], Mac OS X[5], AIX[6], HP-UX[7], QNX[8], and
others[9][10][11][12], all but TDE's fork of KDELibs 3 don't check for
it in configure.  I would be more than happy to implement and maintain this.


Best,
