Agree with Nick and Jeff.

getwd is declared deprecated in the man page (Debian 4.0) and is an easy 
global change to getcwd() for anyone.

I see no reason not to deprecate all three interfaces. I hope we have a 
"replaced by" entry in the database such that people looking up getwd() 
will see that it has been deprecated and what the alternative call is 
supported by LSB.
