I think calling it a libc rewrite does it too much justice. When I
started out I needed something I could statically link against that
would be simple to debug, and had compatible function prologue/epilogue
sequences to the cdecl-calling convention ucc originally used. So I
knocked together a few libc functions.

Now the parser is at a stage that it can handle system headers, and the
code-gen can generate x86_64 compatible function call sequences I don't
need it, it'll be canned at some point.
