Ok, this is simple enough to be in one single file like fakeroot in
directory trans/.  Can you make a patch for that?  I am not sure if netio is
a good name, but I don't have a better suggestion either right now.  Please
also clean up cruft like my_malloc, we just use malloc and check it's return
value in place.  To better match what bash provides we would need to make
the protocol an option rather than a directory in the filesystem (as it
seems to be now).  If you like both behaviours, you might want to keep the
catch-all-protocol behaviour as an option.  Also add a patch for MAKEDEV to
set up /dev/tcp and /dev/udp.
