        I'm not convinced it needs to use ptrace() explicitly; my
intention was to use access_mem()* from the addr_space's accessors in a
machine-independent routine, so that we _know_ the local and remote
registration routines are in synch (since they're the same).

* I'm not sure why the fetch() routines are defined in include/remote.h;
  it may just be because a situation where oblivousness to local or
  remote memory hadn't come up before.
