There was no beginning as such.  This post relates the entire substance
of the issue.

You mean "lose".  But I don't understand this statement.  The
environment is not emulated in any real sense, only the actual ARM code
in the binaries.  If anything, Scratchbox has more emulation, hence its
greater complexity.

In any case, the tools you might run in an ARM chroot would be
precisely the same as you would have in a parent x86 enviroment -
there's no loss of functionality (qemu deficienies aside).
