i was thinking about two topics i could give a talk on,
one is about musl libc and another about general
programming language issues

1) Bugs found by musl
(what happens when a high quality libc meets our modern
software ecosystem)
i plan to pick a few issues and show how a new libc can
be (and is) beneficial, an assorted list for the curious:

2) The costs of abstraction
(why still c is the only serious programming language)
i dont have much to show for this yet, but i wrote about
a memory management issue recently that is related:

these topics are only tangentially relevant to suckless
so i thought i'll put them out here before registering
