I don't think this is feasible. It would be if you'd get it into those 
distroes but people will want to take their own < 1mb libfprtl.so with 
them rather than copy 30mb fpc on various distroes with their apps.

Ofcourse the question is, do we want to utilize libfprtl.so at all?
How do we want to cope with new features in OSes?
