Being rather implemented through filesystem remapping.

It should be allowed for the system's default servers to be easily overridden.  (By setting environment variables, for example.)

This is partly implemented for the `crash' server (albeit largely untested) and has been begun for the `exec' server (see task #6611) and is missing for the others.

Especially, being able to easily override the `pfinet' server running on `/servers/socket/2' would offer a large scale of possibilities.
