Now I can reply to this and there will be context. :)

Some of those are third party so we probably need a policy on that.

Some of those have tests (libdl, uuid and utf8proc should). Alex can
add these if we identify them.

Some of those are hardware frameworks that probably could be tested
with the right stub BUT that might conflict with the BSP so these are
probably off limits.

So we need a master list of all, rationale, and note why each is in or out.

There is a cost per set analyzed but it isn't a big deal if this is done
in batch mode at night. And hopefully we can parallelize this soon.
