Fair enough.  I accept that Linux is in an unusual situation here, with
the loose coupling between libc and kernel, such that you can compile
on a new kernel yet run the binary on an old kernel.

I don't mind maintaining this as a Debian-specific patch, if that's
what you think is appropriate.  I only submitted it because I thought
it was a genuine improvement others would want as well.  Also, I
apologise if I came off sounding as though nobody except Debian cares
about the user experience - I was frustrated because I thought I'd been
misunderstood about why this patch matters to us.
