I agree completely. There are many steps in the checklist to writing
a new syscall, heck we should probably have a checklist!

Socially the issue is difficult because the various communities only
marginally share the same network of developers, care about different
features, or the same features with different priorities.

That doesn't mean we shouldn't try to integrate better. As was pointed
out, various people from the userspace and toolchain communities are
going to LPC to do just this.
