Is there a fuse-based wrapper for tarballs?
A little googling suggests there is but I didn't dig for details.
How useful would it be to make that work from gdb more easily?
E.g., "file tarfuse:myexec"
and then provide a way to register a handler for "tarfuse".
Or some such.
Just thinking out loud ...
