Fakeroot-ng is a (as far as I know) first attempt to do the things
usually done with LD_PRELOAD using the ptrace mechanism. It was both the
trigger and the root cause of this lecture.
The lecture will look at fakeroot, fakechroot, fakeroot-ng and strace,
at varying degrees of depths, mostly because all four chose slightly
different approaches for solving, fundamentally, the same problem.
