Then I guess if they call hard bindings a big pain, they won't be
excited by the pain you offer them through your new soft binding
syscalls.

It's totally ok for qemu, which will just run 2 syscalls per

But with your solution some apps will suffer from the same massive
pain that they're currently suffering. This is why is still niche to me.
