Ah, so to get this into musl, POSIX needs to get this first. Is there a way to
ping that issue tracker to resolve the issue? Doesn't look like random schmucks
like myself can ping it. I think I found eblake's email, let me CC him.

Eric: Would it be possible to resolve the above POSIX feature request one way or
another so that C code can start using it more portably? I would be happy with
qsortr too, it's nice and short. (This thread's archive is at the url.)

Thanks all!
