    Subjectagain security proposal
    I have some security proposal. Hardlinks in given filesystem can created by any
    user. Well known hardlink attack ($ ln /etc/passwd ~/.somestuff; # chown user
    /home/user -R; $ vi ~/.somestuff) now maybe done by any user. Any sysadmin
    can't remember all her security "holes" (i.e. some chown ... -R in
    system crontabs). I think that we must _CHECK_ permissions for files before
    make hardlink. If this conflicts with some standards, maybe needed to make this
