I suddenly recalled there being an experimental(?) mmap-based memory allocator
for Linux in the Unix VM glue code. It would be trivial to try to mmap the
image into memory, wouldn't it? (at the moment, it mmaps /dev/zero with
copy-on-write set into memory, so that writes to memory don't affect the
underlying file). Load the (platform-independent) base image, mmap a nice
chunk from a platform-dependent work image, and never bother again with
