    Having a stable ABI to user-space has been one of the strong points of
    Linux, versus just about everything else out there. And I wouldn't be
    using libc 5 if glibc wasn't growing exponentially with time (both in
    terms of total bytes and in terms of number of shared libraries I have
    to add to my link line).

    It's not just me. There are people using libc 4.
