Almost every userland binary that I have has been built native so shared
libs ARE one of the next logic steps. Shared libs will also help to spread
improvements in the libc much faster throughout the userland and thats a
property of shared libc in which I'm very interested. Oh, and in making
my uploads faster ;-)
