    I don't see why moving up should be wrong - the ABI is {guaranteed | supposed}
    to remain backward compatible so the libc itself should be fine, and using
    the newer headers to build apps shouldn't hurt - at least I can't see any
    obvious cases (there are probably some, but at any rate I, have seen this
    work without problems a number of times, without rebuilding libc but using
    new features from the kernel, like iptables).

    In any case, it doesn't change my example, just let Joe Admin rebuild glibc as
    well :-)
