Certainly not. But entomb isn't exactly what I have in mind either. I want a
library that overloads the unlink system call (in fact a rudimentary version
is already running). However, the entomb library wants me to recompile the
applications using their unlink routine. I don't think it's a good idea to
recompile the complete system.

Also most work is done with a binary. I don't like the idea of the library
calling a binary. I'd like to keep it all inside the library.

You bet. But it needs time.
