    Simple brutal and to the point. Also it means a dynamic library can
    switch to real syscalls and dynamic apps will migrate fine.

    One request - can we specify a namespace of the form

    ['vendorid'].[call]

    vendorid is the wrong phrase but "some sane way of knowing whose syscall
    it is" - it would be bad for andrea-aio and ben-aio to use the same names..
