This is a complicated process, it involves initializing the C runtime
specially, creating special versions of the libraries (special attributes
injected in the various libraries), declaring things appropriately and so
on.   It is not a general purpose system for securing apps.

Well, I can add the method, but if you call it, it will still crash.

So the test suite should perhaps not depend on this feature if we want to
run it on Linux/Unix.
