Subjectgzipped executables
Is there any kernel patch that would allow Linux to properly recognize,
and execute gzipped executables?

I know I could use binfmt_misc to run a wrapper script:

decompress to /tmp/prog.decompressed
execute /tmp/prog.decompressed
rm /tmp/prog.decompressed

But that's not as clean, secure, or fast as the kernel transparently
decompressing & executing. Is there a better way to do this?
