I think it would be fine to do this in libc directly rather than via
LD_PRELOAD. That would let it work for static binaries as well as
dynamic libraries. My understanding is that this is how stdbuf works on
Linux (glibc honors the relevant magic environment variables). To that
end, I think it would be ok to move this into libc directly.
One more question, do you use the same environment variable as glibc for
this, or do you use a different scheme?
