    We're doing no such thing.
    If we did this sort of thing, he would have been pressed into releasing
    glibc 2.2 in time.
    drepper-and-others@redhat.com did have some influence on choosing the
    glibc for 7.0 though, so we're confident no major changes will be
    necessary.

    The opposite is the case. They didn't want to have to support a dead
    branch (2.1/2.95).

    That's what we'll do if any incompatible changes will be necessary -
    fortunately glibc supports versioning.
