	I think it makes the emul path stuff act more like a chroot
environment.  The time when it might cause a problem is when that
path gets fed to something outside the "chroot", i.e. a non-emul
process.  It seems easier to think about solving issues wrt information
moving across that pseudo-root boundary, than wrt inconsistent views
of the filesystem within a single process depending on the syscall.
	However, I haven't actually come up with any concrete examples
of problems/benefits; I was kind of hoping someone here would notice
something obvious one way or the other. :)
