    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?
