The common request to add strlcat() and strlcpy() [...] will likely not be satisfied for just those compatibility reasons.
It has been asked within the last day or so, for strlcpy/strlcat to be included in eglibc (much more people know of it within the last week or two, due to the LWN publicity). And it was rejected, due to the desire for compatibility with glibc.
