OK, that is great. Then we get back to the idea of handlers for your 
executables. If we can provide a chain of handlers. At least some form
of ini file that says 

1. if the exe is in this list use this runtime otherwise goto next
and at the end, use the microsoft default.

I will leave this up to you for now, we have alot of porting and
