    This blatant attempt to defend a broken subsystem by "analogy" fails
    because last time
    I checked the semantics of system calls like read/write/open/close
    didn't
    change significantly between kernel version 1.0 and 2.6.15.

    The number of system calls didn't change that much as well.

    Yes it may be true that some aggregation of exhaustive crappy
    interfaces over time
    in the kernel can be indeed observed. However the very fact which
    makes it remain
    still usable are precisely those very "primitive" system calls -
    which are still
    around and kicking.
