For the record, there are some bugs in the implementation I posted that
result in segmentation faults when catting inexistent or inaccessible
files and if allocation fails. I believe I have these fixed on my local

If there is interest in pursuing this direction I'll post the updated

In the meantime comments are always welcome!
