just BTW:
When I needed glib's getline() for a socket descriptor (using freopen to use a 
stream), I realized that I did not work (i guess, the stream has to be 
seekable). So I wrote my own function, directly capable of using file/socket 
descriptors. I did not look at gnulib's code, since I needed my own copyright 
on the code. Afterwards I realized my function being (AFAIK) ~30% faster that 
glib's - I guess it is the missing FILE handle overhead...
