I hope Peter Mueller is looking at Ian Taylor's old patch to enable more
functionality.  It used dyanamic loading to give Linux system weak or
non-conflicting names.  With this infrastructure to build upon, he
was able to use the TCP/IP stack which means that we should be able to
run any service.  It would be great to get this functionality up to
date and merged.

Peter are you looking at it?  I have a few more notes from Ian.

Does anyone else want to play with it?

I have merged it.

It's in the queue after I do a build cycle.
