Why: Two reasons: They'll be useful on dying systems (see the possible ITP
for rescue), and to use in shell-scripts and other times when you don't need
the full-blown thing. I'm on a slow system now and these should help me.
Also, it would be great if some standard shell-scripts used these; it should
help load times... though for that they'd have to become essensial.
Dealing with replacements:
I'm planning on installing these as tiny_foo binaries next to the standard
binaries, and _optionaly_ diverting the ones listed in GNU-LIST.

It might take a few days to get the diversions how I want them. Also, I
have Real Work to do. I'll send a message to you when it's done.
