Hi Shehjar:

That's fine, I think, as long as it is recognized that trapping system 
call open() as booster is implemented today probably does not trap 
fopen() on Linux. If apache and unfs3 always call open() directly, and 
you are trapping this, then your purpose is being served.

I was kind of hoping you had found a way around --disable-hidden-plt, so 
I could steal the idea from you. Too bad. :-)
