 i'm thinking about a replacement for posix that resists vulnerabilities through large amounts of random behaviour - so thinking about the relevant system call api

we propose and have prototyped 

spoon() which replaces fork(), and has far less precise semantics


resurrect() which replaces both exec() and kill(), with the obvious connotations

open(),close(),read(),write(),link(), and seek() are replaced by a single multihead attention system call

llm() which either entrains or implies, depending on the sense of the first param.

rand() of course, behaves exactly as before, at least under test, generating the pseudo-random number sequence 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9 etc etc
