For the record, I checked, and Red Hat 9's lsb-1.3 package
simply made ld-lsb.so.1 a symlink to ld-linux.so.2,
so that version of their lsb environment does seem to use
NPTL.   Probably they figured they'd do something fancier
if they got any complaints, and since nobody was shipping
LSB-1.3 apps, they never had to.

It'll be interesting to see if LSB-2.0 apps actually get
deployed... having an argument about hypothetical pros and
cons is a bit sterile.
