And the infamous NSK! Thanks a ton, you beat me too it! Guess I can throw out my work-in-progress implementation now. :-)

If you want to test this with coreutils, you need to add fchdir to the
module list, use --avoid=canonicalize-lgpl, and drop the fchdir-stub.c.

So far I've only built release tarballs of coreutils, so... anyone have more detailed instructions on how I would do that? :-) Or are there plans to make this part of a future coreutils release?

Don't read this. What did I just tell you? Why are you still reading?
