I'd like to see it included... But I also agree that we have to have
a drop-dead date for No More Features :)

A/UX as well and most likely NeXT. In fact, all BSD-4.3-based
OSs most likely need it. :/

I would really like to have l_c() tested as much as possible and
therefore have it enabled by default for all platforms. Unfortunately,
this may cause heartburn on the testers. No real good solution, but
that's what beta-tests are for. Enable l_c() for all and tell people
in NICE BIG LETTERS that l_c() is a sensitive chunk of code and
we want it tested :/
