IOW it exposes the _bugs_ in how people are accustomed to reason.

Is your opinion (about efficiency) sufficiently well informed?
No offence but I assume you to be a mutimedia guru, not a standard
library expert, which the author of the code is.

We shall not blindly accept authority of course. If you have a suggestion
for improvement, given a reasonable ground it would be useful on the musl
mailing list.

Here and without a real ground it looks like a FUD.

As for readability, it is your personal opinion.

Again: no offence! Standard libraries are just a quite different area,
it postulated other skills and presents other implementation challenges
than multimedia programming.

Friendly regards,
