I'm giving you a very accurate prediction, and being lazy about explaining
the responses I know you will get if you ask for it.  Feel free to
experience it for yourself if you don't want to take my word for it.  If
you propose it to libc and linux developers, you will get explanations
aplenty.  I'd be happy to discuss ways that might actually fly to address
the problem that motivated your idea.

I do avoid it now, but don't think I haven't done years of it in the
hardest times for it and deeply appreciate the kinds of things you want.

Like I said, it would be perfectly reasonable on debian-hurd or other
debian lists to discuss ways to prevent packages from being built without
being fixed or annotated properly.  This doesn't belong on bug-hurd, which
is about systems where no <linux/*.h> header file exists.
