I haven't heard any of the interfaces /past/ glibc 2.4 be requested 
at all; in fact the only interface set "verbally" requested is
the inotify batch at glibc 2.4, but that doesn't mean I don't think
the *at functions and the *chk functions shouldn't also be in.

Our own survey data of course doesn't include "enterprise apps
running on RHEL/SLES" with such symbols since they're too new.
