    This is an important point. 'cat /lib/libc.so.6' does horrible things on
    and to my terminal. Is cat broken? No, I'm broken if I think that this
    command means anything useful. 'cat /libc/libc.so.6 > libc.so.6' works
    just fine.

    A Brazil-nut is neatly packaged and tightly integrated. To turn it into
