Very cool. Thanks. I'm trying it now.
I see from your documentation changes this removes whole modes of error.

Oh, definitely. But it's *so close* to fitting!

Are you idealogically opposed to the relpath strategy?
Under this scheme, no absolute paths would be encoded in any binary, only
relative paths.
To find files, binaries would use the known relative path and argv[0] (and
getcwd(3) if argv[0] is relative).

Obviously that's a lot of work that you may be unwilling to undertake given
questionable benefit.
I just want to know if you hate the idea.
