For this to be really useful, libpatch would have to provide hooks to
allow replacing _all_ input/output functions (ie.
open,close,read,write,chdir,....) like libz allows (though libz is much
easier since it doesn't do as much with files as patch).
Only in that case could we use hackerlab as a backend and achieve what we
need -- a vu aware patch.
