Thanks for writing this. I agree 100%. I have linked to your post from
the bug reporting section of the wiki.
Keeping in mind the points that Ryan made: feature wishlists are
something you can always add to the wiki.
Please see http://sourceware.org/glibc/wiki/HomePage, and scroll to
"Project Wishlist By Developer"
We are always interested in new developers.
