not really, a lot of functionality would be missing (for example, working
aio_read/write... cannot be safely emulated without pread/pwrite).

Of course, things could be improved, but it would still be of limited use
(for example, even when pread/pwrite should be available according to the
posix symbols, it does not mean they are there, or working).
