Reptyr currently has support for Linux and FreeBSD using
ptrace. macOS, however, lacks a complete

Having an interest in Rust, I stopped working on the macOS support, and instead decided I would port it to Rust and then add macOS support.
Some very early code for macOS support is available here: mf-macos_support
Work on the Rust port is happening here: mf-rust_port
