Redo command recording: no longer RECORD_COMMMANDS config entry, now sources/more/ run to set up the wrapper (either before or after General cleanup and simplification of code this interacted with, plus clean up bit rot in the reporting.

// A little wrapper to figure out what commands you're actually using.

// To use it, you'll need to make a directory of symlinks and set up two
// environment variables.  Something like:
// export WRAPPY_LOGPATH=/path/to/wrappy.log
// export OLDPATH="$PATH"
// WRAPPYDIR=/path/to/wrappy
// cp wrappy $WRAPPYDIR
// for i in `echo $PATH | sed 's/:/ /g'`
// do
//   for j in `ls $i`
//   do
//     ln -s wrappy $WRAPPYDIR/$j
//   done
// done
// PATH="$WRAPPYDIR" make thingy

#include <fcntl.h>
#include <stdio.h>
#include <string.h>
#include <stdlib.h>

// No, I'm not doing any bounds checking.  It's a debug wrapper.
