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.
