You assume that I want to have to deal with multiple *libc*s.  That
breaks systems, sometimes even when they're designed to stay out of
each other's way (e.g. Linux libc5 vs. libc6/glibc2.0 vs. glibc2.1).
It's not acceptable AT ALL for non-Linux; forget about it.

I repeat:  glibc on non-Linux not an option, period.
It's not a case of "resisting free software".
It's a case of not breaking systems that MUST work.

And with glibc not an option, GNOME must NOT rely on or even expect
glibc features.

I will add that the glibc folks have heard the "you ought to support
`http://...'" thing before, and it still doesn't.  It's pretty clear
that you can forget that idea as well.
