Can you back up this claim? If you uninstall glibc, you are f**ked.
pacman.static (and every other binary on your system minus those
statically linked against klibc) will not run. I know this from doing
it by accident on my Eee. :)

If someone wants to do a "replacement", feel free. Let me know who
wants to maintain the pacman package and build it in the PKGBUILD. I
really have no desire to both hack on the code and package it for
Arch- I see them as two completely different things. Travis did in
fact find the thread where this all came up on pacman-dev and no one
had complaints against it from that side of the fence:
