There are about 1800 functions in the 2008 release.
and CORE together support about 100 (but also not really strict) 

There are some modules on CPAN which implement some additional
functions.  A few dozen.

I started POSIX::1003 which tries to provide all functions... as
pure as feasible.  But... I need to rework it into a more flexible
installation structure using Config::AutoConf.  Help welcome ;-)
When I get help, I will increase its priority.
