That works for me. One suggestion is that in addition to "opt-out",
it should be also possible for an application launcher file to specify
a specific cgroup name that should be used. That would allow multiple
applications in a group to assigned to the same cgroup.

There also needs to be a way to start applications that are started
via the GNOME and KDE session manager in a specified cgroup as well.
I assume that's in your plan as well?
