This can work, one problem is that if we go this way, we'll have to 
'shadow' all symbols, or else we'll get conflict with the C library. 
In any event, it's a tricky method that can result in some strange
bugs if we don't redefine all symbols, so Alexandre will have to 
comment on it if we are to try it out.
