I see no problem with that, myself, as long as compilation
defaults to the catch-all.

Sven was mentionning that the libs need to be made capable to
cope with a multi-threaded environment, and more useable as
shareable dynamically loaded libs. The restructuring you are
suggesting might come fairly naturally in that context.

I agree it would save work in the long run, and improve overall
unix compatibility. Would using the GNUlib save work in the
multi-threading/dynamic loading areas?
