   I don't think we care about POSIX at all here.  If Alfred wants to
   write a translator which is totally non-POSIX, he should be free to
   do so.

What I meant was that we can disregard POSIX aslong as programs
reading/writting from the file work as expected.  And as far as I can
tell, POSIX doesn't even come into play here, atleast with how I am
thinking of implementing it.

Oh, and nobody commented about the important bit, how should the
translator should be set. :-)

   but I think the translator would be very useful for debugging

Exactly the reason why I came up with the idea in the first place, I
was debugging ext2fs and dumping the output from it into a file, but
the you only have a finite amount of space, and you are really only
interested what happened before something went wrong.
