It sounds like it disconnects the internal unexec format from the underlying 
system, which could be a good portability gain.  It also allows the emacs 
executable to load different core runtimes and would make the initial binary 
quite a bit smaller, if I understand correctly.

This type of patch seems like a good move to me and pulls it closer to almost 
every CL implementation out there.
