Hmm... it might be interesting to experiment with something like this,
if it can _really_ be compiled standalone. (Linux binary distribution is
a hellhole of incompatible linked library versions!)
Static compiling the stuff? How would this affect the binary size? (And: is
static linking working across different libc versions?)
BTW, what about Mac OS / FreeBSD hosts?
