I usually say what glibc version you need in the announcement.  The
stock 2.3 was fine for 03.  The next code drop will need more changes

consider the CVS head as always working.  That's what I'm using internally.

How we will handle this in the end is another question.  ld.so already
has some functionality which can help and that's probably what we will use.
