Um, no. As I said earlier, NetBSD's libc does not need to be the
of every mistake anyone has ever made in libc in any other Unix-like
It is unquestionably the case that there is bad code in NetBSD.
not in any way go to justify adding more bad code to NetBSD.
There has been nearly unanimous opposition from other developers to
this particular code to NetBSD's libc. I suggest that unless core,
the relevant technical management, say it's okay to add, it would
about the time to drop the subject, for now.
I brought it up again more because I think we should find a proper
solution once and for all. Sth that is better than what is available
now, better than strtonum and the strsuftoll and friends functions ;)
