I'd like to see a more general approach. This breaks my native aarch64 on aarch64
container.
It could be nice to have a general mapping of arch => emulator which is used if
target arch is not host arch (32/64 bit agnostic, where possible). Then we could
also go easily the other way and have x86 CT on aarch6e - as example.
