Thanks a lot, that's indeed way better! I'll add it in the round of patch.

No, libc is also be supported (including the default collation), as long as we
have a way to get the version. Unfortunately, that means only linux/glibc. I
think that there was some previous discussion to work around that limitation
for other systems, using some kind of hash of the underlying collation files,
as Peter mentioned recently, but that's not part of this patchset.
