 Shouldn't fakeroot be fixed for Debian GNU/Linux though?  Since it uses $*
instead of $@ something like
'fakeroot mpg123 "/home/Media/mp3/ABBA - Dancing Queen.mp3"'
doesn't work.  However, to get 'fakeroot :' to work the fakeroot for GNU/Hurd
would still have to remove the call to exec, and the GNU/Linux fakeroot would
to change 'sh -c $*' to be just "$@".
