    Yes, that would be a better answer to this issue. I was largely looking
    to produce an alternative implementation of the same thing with less
    core impact. It looks like it may have been too powerful for its own
    good, which is okay, since I didn't really like the sysctl idea anyway
    (though apparently the thing looks attractive to other people for other
    uses, which I don't really know much about, and am not really pursuing).

    There's a push to fix up the capability issues ongoing that I'm getting
    involved in instead.
