AWESOME!  Thanks for working on this!  Best of luck!

I am commenting just because.  I'm a guix contributor not a developer,
so please take my words with a grain of salt.  :)

I believe that busybox has a more permissive license than coreutils?  Is
that true?   I think I heard rms suggest that one should develop for
coreutils more than busybox.  Someone please correct me if I am mistaken
in some way.

Anyway, great job!  And best of luck!
