Indeed. But the lack of any reports about that suggests that in practice
this is universally supported enough to be a hard dependency.

In any case, it's clear you don't agree and you manage the patch
queue. So I'll leave it at that.

My aim here was to discover if we had any reason to think that "local"
was less universally implemented than other POSIX/C89-plus features we
rely on. It seems that it's not.
