   If program uses POSIX API, then there should be POSIX behaviour.

Meh, I was unclear.  What I meant was that the translator can do
whatever it wants to the file offset.  Aslong as read/write/whatever
work as expected.

   One way to circumvent this is by declaring that this is socket, not 
   file, so io_seek/lseek returns ESPIPE.

But then you loose some useful functionality, it should act as a
normal file as much as possible.
