Why do you want libc to be 5 times slower than other libraries?

The libc-alpha list is really for the discussion of glibc patches e.g.
concrete changes.

There might be a discussion started by the patch, but the initiating
events involve patches.

The libc-help list is definitely the place to have pre-patch
discussions e.g. no working solution yet.

If the webpage said "discussion of glibc patches," would that have
made the intent clear?
