I bow to your superior google-foo. Interesting thing from those links,
apparently *I* was the first person to mention newlib as the appropriate
home for the XDR implementation, not Corinna.  Weird.

Well, historical oddities notwithstanding, I think newlib /is/ the
correct place, simply because I can easily see a demand/need for XDR
code on other newlib targets.  But obviously the ultimate call is Jeff
J's -- although I'm not planning on even submitting it over there unless
this group decides it is the correct thing to do.
