I don't think Alpine or other apk-based distributions like Adelie are 
appropriate for such a comparison.  While it is true that we consume musl, we 
layer other things (for example, libucontext, GNU libiconv, GNU libintl) on 
top of it to fill in the gaps.  Accordingly, on Alpine you don't get a "pure" 
musl experience as you would with, say, sabotage.
