Isn't std.c supposed to be going away?

Without looking at the code, I would expect core.stdc to have standar C stuff and 
core.sys to have system-specific stuff, so on the surface at least, it seems 
sensible for them to be separate. But I see no point in std.c on top of 
core.stdc. Still, IIRC, std.c is supposed to be going away and that we're 
supposed to be using core.stdc now.
