    Hmmm. Okay, it isn't listed in my POSIX reference (which is really dated).

    I don't have any docs on this... I did grep around some header files on a
    Linux box and it looks to be a fairly complex interface. I'm not opposed
    to supporting the interface, but I would like the syscall to be fairly
    light-weight.

    Would my original proposal cover the POSIX spec with some userland glue?

    L8r,
