Er, why would people need to simultaneously know the details of the
kernel-level interface (only of interest to people writing libcs) and of
the POSIX interface (only of interest to people using libcs).
It seems to me that your division is of most use only to libc authors :/
everyone else will need either one half of the info, or the other half.
(Of course this is relevant only for the small minority of syscall/libc
calls that differ significantly, and as I said, I'm not doing the *work*,
so my opinion is worth basically nothing :) )
Solaris has a clear .2 / .3 divide: it's only that it then subdivides
section 3 into enough subsections that you're then left guessing which of
*those* your page might be in. Let's not do *that*. :)
