Politics perhaps?  I've heard that the glibc maintainer has an attitude
similar to Dan Bernstein, ie complete disbelief anyone has the gall to
submit patches against his perfect work.

I'm starting to warm to the idea that Microsoft doesn't have to do
anything to destroy Linux, it can just sit back and wait for all the
internal politics to do that.
