Thank you. Except for the extract-related patch which I already pushed,
I'll handle the remaining four a bit later (week has been quite busy,
and I'm really exhausted...). But overall, looks good now! Thank you!

Yes, sorry, I totally missed the introductory message. Apologies...

And I totally agree with you analysis. I would just add my own two
thoughts on the subject.

First, if one wants the BIG library for his/her embedded product, one will
most probably be willing to pay the price for the full-blown archive with
all locales in it, so that's not a real issue, I believe.

Second, maintaining a patch against every and all glibc versions just for
the locales is just too much trouble. If the target and host do not have
the same endiannes and/or unit32_t alignment, then it is still possible to
switch to using eglibc instead of plain glibc.

Thank you very much for the thorough explanations!
