The simple fact is GNU/Linux could do much better on this front and
it appears we have no real plan or general consensus on how to proceed to
in address this issue on a global scale.
A full ack on this, we would solve a lot of items if we could move
forward to have a standard lib for all this. But it will be very
hard to have agreement on how to solve it and even more to make
projects move over from their current ways.
