Good point.

When you say emulator I expect you mean something like a qemu userspace
emualtor that runs only the cross-platform binary without starting a full
system simulator?

I think we need to reject the notion that glibc testing is going to be
runnable on a userspace emulator. There is more testing that
I'd like to do which is going to require chroot or containers, and
therefore unusable without an ssh-like bridge to a complete target
