For the resolver library work I took the approach to take over the src
& header file organisation & code of glibc.  I realise now I haven't asked
the feedback from the other GCC/UnixLib hackers to backup this decision.

Do we agree this is a good approach and will we continue doing this ? The
more closely we can follow the glibc structure and code, the easier we
can introduce new features, no ?
