Is Samba using gnulib?  If not, anything done in gnulib will not help.

It seems gnulib could easily provide a fstab.h replacement and its
related functions.  The functions are by nature not thread safe, so I'm
not certain it is wise to promote their use.  On the other hand, there
is plenty of thread-unsafe code in gnulib already which is useful for
applications that aren't threaded.

Does anyone else have any opinion on the fstab APIs?


I wonder if it is strictly glibc-only, or if some other systems have
adopted the same interface?  If some other system also supports the same
interface, I think that is another indication that it would make sense
to add it to gnulib.

I'm inclined to add it, if for nothing else just completeness, and will
volunteer to add it and write some test cases for it.
