*THIS IS NOT A FORK* ! only is a variant optimised for embedded devices.

and Debian *already* did it, on 05 May 2009:

---cut---
eglibc (2.9-11) unstable; urgency=low

  * Switch to Embedded GLIBC (EGLIBC), sources taken from the 2.9
    branch.
    - Update all/submitted-readme-version.diff.
    - Update any/local-bashisms.diff.
    - Update any/cvs-bz9697-posix-regcomp.diff.
    - Update any/cvs-binutils_2.20.diff.
    - Drop any/local-makeconfig.diff.
    - Drop any/submitted-getcwd-sys_param_h.diff (merged in eglibc).
    - Add any/submitted-cross-zic.diff to fix biarch builds.
    - Add any/submitted-nss-nsswitch.diff to fix linuxthreads builds.
    - Add any/submitted-install-map-files.diff to fix GNU/Hurd builds.
    - More tests of flavour/biarch builds are run, update the expected
      testsuite results accordingly.
    - Rename glibc-source package into eglibc-source.
