That's not possible. Everyone will claim their request is just as
important as the others.
These are no save names to use. Only the fact that for decades the _
name space is reserved helps. If BSD think they can do what they want
just don't use their code. Have them fix their code and not introduce
into general namespaces. Guess why glibc uses lengthy names like
__attribute_malloc__? Certainly not because it's convenient.
