We cannot take this patch, as the gnulib strverscmp function is meant to be
a substitute for the glibc function of the same name. (Sorry, the doc was not
clear about it until today.) This means, gnulib's strverscmp needs to behave
the same as glibc's strverscmp.

If you want a behaviour change of gnulib's strverscmp, it needs to be
accepted by glibc first. But I think, Jakub Jelinek and Ulrich Drepper already
rejected such a proposal.

You are welcome to propose a new, different function for gnulib, though.
