I see here: http://www.etalabs.net/compare_libcs.html
that that musl misses POSIX localedef, legacy codepages and iconv.

Could we imagine a repackaging of bits of glibc{,solibs,i18n} so that
we be feature complete on that respect?

Just curious (and currently cherry picking part of that to include it
in Slint installers, hence the question).


PS Of course that would be needed only if/when Pat ships
musl in Slackware as a drop-in replacement of glibc, so
maybe not tomorrow morning ;)
