That's silly. You can have strlcat() and strlcpy(), yet be compatible

That's silly. Eglibc could _add_ new functions without becoming incompatible with the existing glibc. I know of no technical argument that makes adding strlcat()/strlcpy() impossible for glibc. The only reason they're not in glibc is because Ulrich Drepper doesn't want to support them.
