Well, libc should be the standard library for user programs on the
Hurd.  That is, a GNU/Hurd system should have one standard library:

We specifically chose *not* to have a generic "Hurd" library, because
libc already *is* the generic Hurd library.  libshouldbeinlibc is a
good place for things where the interface might change and we aren't
sure how it will develop.  Once we are quite certain it's stable, then
a function there should be migrated into libc.
