Let me say again that this fork would only be so that we can continue
working more effectively.  Of course, we would continue submitting all
patches to the main glibc.

Another one: as per a recent glibc HEAD change, our upstream posix_opt.h
was already changed by Ulrich, but now in Debian's
hurd-i386/local-pthread_posix-option.diff, _POSIX_THREADS should no
longer be defined to 200112L, but to 200809L instead.  If we advertize
libpthread in there, should we do so in there for other _POSIX_* likewise
as well?  I'm not familiar with that interface, and I didn't check yet.
