You waste your venon on me. I have no vested interest in glibc.
I was just making a comment on OpenSSH code. I could careless what
you shove into glibc nor what crappy unreadable method of 'optimizing'
And had I realized I was walking into a "strl* should be in glibc" fight I
would have never bothred to post.

hmm.. If you are whining about portablity.. snprintf() works as well and
is portable to most platforms (that don't have a borken snprintf()
versions). But I would never suggest using it unless one was looking to
do a quick and dirty application.
