That's nice.  I suppose you could always fork off your own GregBSD and 
take on this project yourself.

That's because we've hashed the issue over and over literally *years* 
ago, and even experienced some of the pain when we tried to bump the 
libc major during that time period.  The pain we experienced is what 
caused us to down-rev back to the previous libc major and implement 
symbol renaming.  This is a dead horse, and frankly, we have better 
things to do with our time than educate you when the information is out 
there for your own gathering.

Those of us arguing against bumping the libc major know, from 
experience, what we're talking about.  You, as far as I can tell, have 
absolutely zero clue as to the scope of the problem.

I suggest you educate yourself.  Start by reading the mailing list 
archives from years past.
