That *is* better. The only reason there are two at the moment is that
uClibc has been the libc of choice since nearly the beginning, but is
not quite ready. When 1.0 releases (which I do not think we are anywhere
near ready for), unless uClibc starts developing like crazy then
technically 1.0 will only be a half stable release. The glibc half. But
I do believe uClibc is the future and I keep my eye on that future.
Until then, it is usuable (if lacking somewhat), which is why it is
still in trunk and why we are rendering 2 books.

Thanks for the input, Jerome!
