+	  When one toybox command calls another, usually it just calls the new

+	  exec on another file (which is much slower).

+	  This disables that optimization, so toybox will run external commands
+          even when it has a built-in version of that command. This requires
+          toybox symlinks to be installed in the $PATH, or re-invoking the
+          "toybox" multiplexer command by name.
