My plan is to integrate that with the loadorder and builtin dll
mechanism. So CreateProcess("notepad.exe") would load either the
native notepad.exe or the builtin transparently depending
on your config. And the builtin would pretend to be loaded from
c:/windows/system just like dlls, so you wouldn't need to configure a
drive for /usr/local/bin (except if you want to launch real Unix
binaries from there too).
