If flags comes first, I would rather like to call it execfve(), or
perhaps execxve() ("extended") or execove() ("options"). execfve()
sounds like it executes a file descriptor (which would probably be
called fexecve()).

Perhaps more seriously, if we're adding more functionality already, it
should acquire -at functionality (execveat) and take a directory argument.
