I wasn't suggesting anybody use newlib. Rather, I was suggesting that
all the interface a C, or Go, or Java, or ASM program ever needs
between it and the "POSIX" OS is contained in 17 syscalls. That's
about as minimal, or suckless as you can get. The fact that the
newlib folks identified that fact is inconsequential.
