I've got hold of a RedHat5.1 cd now, which means in the near future I 
could move to glibc in order to start helping you with things like that..

Time to think about goals and priorities here.

Do you see the libc branch as really getting anywhere and becoming useful, 
or do you suspect that it will be fading out sooner rather than later?

That's my main concern at this point, whether what I'll be doing now is
useful; I can stand it if earlier efforts turn out to be wasted so don't
be afraid to tell me the truth.

I agree, too many alternatives coming up during an install are confusing
to the novice. They prefer simplicity over choice.
