I'm disappointed you chose a private mailing list for the discussion.
This doesn't really match how glibc development proceeds today.

I'm puzzled why you think this is a major change.  It only affects Emacs
and perhaps some unpublished (and therefore likely proprietary)
applications we know nothing about.

The research in the parent thread suggests that I was mistaken and Emacs
should compile just fine after removal of the API.  And as I wrote in my
initial message, this was never about removal of the ABI, so existing
Emacs binaries will keep working.
