This is a bit off-topic, but related to the PFS naming. Having ":" in 
the path causes a lot of trouble. Dunno if this issue has been brought 
up by jmarino. One such situation is the sysctl KERN_PROC_PATHNAME, e.g. 
used by rust to find the path of the executable. The problem arises when 
this is used in a PATH variable, as ":" is used there as a separator as 
well. The alternative is using /proc/curproc/cmdline, but this requires 
a mounted /proc filesystem which causes problems with the synth builder.
