  Oh, c'mon, Rob! I really didn't want to ask Paul Brook that, but
sure you'll fix my cluelessness right here, right now - tell me, tell me,
why Linux has dynamic-loadable modules support, which clueless passers-by
like me call "plugins"? It must be closed-source diversion, no? Those Linux
guys should really take that GPLv3 pill, don't you think? Yummy! ;-)

  Well, let's face it - that's your comments on *.PIF files and XML
parsers that add spice (*1) to the discussion. So don't be surprised
that people start to reassure... ;-)

  Oh, and while we still talking (and to add even more confusion),
how'd you guys managed to kill "ps ax" to work in busybox 1.2.1? I
really miss it here, when loading my embedded images into QEMU...
