Applications which include <sys/user.h>, or any other non-standard
header file, should expect that any conceivable symbol might be used
therein.  FreeBSD makes no guarantees as to the namespace used by
non-standard interfaces.  (We don't want to be like certain other
environments where every symbol that might conceivably be accessible
to an application is obfuscated with multiple underscores.)
