Saying "just use glib" is cargo cult programming, IMNSHO. Why would I use a 300k SLoC library just for a saner way to copy a string?
Because it's a saner way to do _everything_. If you just want strings, you can go use the Better String Library (bstring), but then you need to go find a better everything else library, too.
Besides, you're cargo-culting a one million SLoC library called glibc, and arguing for the inclusion of more functions in it... if you like "plain, vanilla C", you're welcome to copy strings without glibc. :) (Or with another standard library like dietlibc.)
