It shouldn't even be all that much harder. You only really need to add the
"lookup()" and "readdir()" logic to the pid-fd's, and they both should be
fairly straightforward, ie something like the appended should do the
lookup() part.

(UNTESTED! NOT COMPILED! PROBABLY HORRIBLY BUGGY! CAVEAT USER! CONCEPTUAL
CODE ONLY! YOU GET THE IDEA! I'M GETTING HOARSE FROM ALL THE SHOUTING!)
