Well, I'm not suggesting we drop support for glibc 2.[012].x systems.
First question is 'Is it possible'? If it is, would we want it? What
are the advantages/disadvantages? Only then can we ask 'Can we do it
in a clean way, without dropping support for the old glibc?'. Can we
do it at runtime or must it be a configure-time thing? And so on...
