Just redirecting it to glibc would be trivial, but the problem is that's
not the Right Thing To Do (tm) as both don't have exactly the same
behavior, and that some apps rely on the msvcrt behavior (ie, break when
using glibc's). I'm sure there are some other reasons like the path used
by characters to be drawn on screen (glibc's stdlib vs some console
handler path for msvcrt), etc.
