I've been reading the newlib list and they do not need "encouragement".
Newlib is like any other free software project.  They need someone to do
the work.  Please do not send "me toos" to the newlib list.  They are
not required.

If you want something in newlib, then please submit a patch to make it
happen.  That's how it works.
