Although I'm no big fan of supporting threaded code it would seem to me
that something has to be done to "fix" nsswitch and I'm on the side of
using something that already exists if it is well designed, even if it
means changing internal system APIs a bit.  I don't know if IRS meets
those criteria, but if I'm not mistaken some people seem to think it does.
