Description

it appears that most of these functions showed up in macOS 10.10. They are POSIX 200809 for the most part, I believe.

Current software is increasingly using these, most often without replacements.

There are replacements for some of these in gnulib, not always completely replicating the functionality.

Sounds ok to me.

Do you have a link for a possible implementation ? Bear in mind to use it in the legacy-support library the license must be compatible with the MIT license used there.

GPL3+ is out I am afraid...

Hmmm. Seriously, licenses are important. Please do not add anything not compatible with MIT. I have no wish to get into hot water..
