Yes.  We did those, and were asked to provide a fuller
implementation.  Here is what we have so far...  We're
open, in fact eager, to see other people's implementations
based on different designs, but here is what *we*'ve got.

Oh, and it was NEVER said at the cr-minisummit that we would have
simple syscalls doing a full, complicated c/r.  Only that
we would start with simple syscalls to do a single task with
no open resources.  And you can still do that with v18, with
one simple syscall.
