Please note that this thread started because Git tried to shed the
restrictions of POSIX by using REG_STARTEND. In other words, we tried very
much *not* to be restricted.

And pragmatically, I must add that the REG_STARTEND feature is a very,
very useful one.

If you want to turn your sadness into something productive (you will allow
me that little prod after all you said in your mail), why don't you
dig back through the Git mailing list, fish out my original patch that
fell back to the "malloc();memcpy();/*add NUL*/" strategy, and contribute
that as a patch to the Git project, making a case that musl requires it?

Ciao,
Johannes
