It costs ~1MB in disk space for each libc bump, yes that's expensive. But so is having many random, non-system applications bomb after you upgrade. Shooting all early adopters in the head is really bad for PR. I think that 1MB of disk space is worth it. > For 6.0, can we start off libc at libc.so.YYYYMMDD and move it Yes! Yes!
