	Are the bang-paths needed to be VISIBLE outside your site/system ?

	maybe, maybe not...

	Most Linux distributions may be able to do it, but most systems
	I use are Solaris, and whatnot others where I can't rely on having
	glibc around.

	While I love to beat M$ with Linux World Domination, my UNIX
	environment is still rather large.

	Sure we could have an alternate file for   #include "sfio.h"
	which wraps ATT-Research SFIO into glibc at systems having
	sufficiently modern one.

	This is same sort of question which I get sometimes considering:
	- Why not C++ ?
	- Why not pure ANSI-C ?
	- Why not PERL in core instead of what current there is ?
	- Why not threads at scheduler ?

	The idea is to use minimum technology possible..
