The posting was by Tim Prince.  If you told him what you just
told me, to go talk to newlib, then I suppose he would not have
submitted any code to you.  But I don't see it in newlib either.

I don't think that explains it.
You could have copied the implementations from the old linux libc,
glibc 1 or 2 libraries, from libio, from gmp, or from DJGPP.  The printf
in newlib is BSD.  That has previously been modified for long double
support in linux libc 4, as a contributed item for DJGPP and, one would
think, by BSD as well.  Why aren't you using any of these six
or seven codes that various people have indeed implemented?
What is the policy?
