I guess it might be the original goal. But I don't see how you can
do it for all kinds of the native stdio implementations. I don't
think people will use glibc this way. At least, I will be very
reluctant to use glibc instead of libc on Solaris. On the other
hand, it may be a good idea to create a GNUBSD based on some xxxBSD
with glibc instead of its libc :-).
