Obviously, I disagree.
Prior to the ANSI standard, strdup() was commonly part of the C
library, right? Why did the C89 standard include gets() but not
strdup()? If gets() had been dropped from the standard back in 1989,
would that have been a bad thing; would you have (or did you) argue
for including it?
