There's no way I want to see every system call wrapped like that... it's a
code maintenance nightmare. It shouldn't be necessary on any modern Unix
with restartable system calls. The only functions one should need to wrap
in that fashion are writes and network reads.
If Solaris really isn't properly restarting system calls, that's an
operating system bug.
