I may be entirely wrong but at a cursory glance I don't think there is
anything there that could possibly make it work yet (although I am sure
that it will at some point)  Windows has direct OS support for this kind
of stuff but it's going to require quite a lot more code for it to work on
Linux (although the kernel does have the hooks if I remember correctly,
they aren't exposed to user code anywhere.)
