Linux has this ability by 2.1.125.  User-side support is a little
lacking right now, though.  (Course, not much is needed.  I've only
recently gotten this kernel, and I haven't upgraded enough of my
software I can run it full-time yet.  Because of this, I haven't had
much time to play with it.)

However, it doesn't contain much in the way of command-line flags; I
think I'd like to see the option of having a separate file store command
lines, so that you could have arbitrary-length records which don't slow
down processes which don't care about them.
