not all the work needs to be done by Rob or the busybox developers
remember that maintaining a large patch out-of-kernel is a significant drain on a projects resources, once it can move into the kernel that drain is stopped and the time can be spent on other things, including (in this case) plugging the holes tha prevent it from working with more apps (to a large degree anyway, they don't want to have to support every function call forever)
