OK, though if coreutils starts taking --as-needed seriously (it
doesn't yet) then it will be more likely that its Make rules will
specify libraries not always needed (since coreutils won't care),
which will mean other gnulib users will have to take some
responsibility to trim the libraries down to the minimum in the Make
rules.  But this shouldn't lead to serious problems, just suboptimal

Sorry, I don't know.  I don't know what the bugs were.  Would they
have affected coreutils?
