    SubjectUsing capabilities
    I'm doing a fair bit of raw network programming and
    I find it very annoying to have to do all the testing
    as root. Now, I figure I could give my user
    CAP_NET_RAW and CAP_NET_ADMIN but this is tricky.

    For starters, any call to set*id() will clear the
    bits if you're not root. This can be disabled
    but then (i guess) login won't drop all the caps.

    Then I figured CAP_SETPCAP to set it afterwards,
    but it seems that not even init has this cap set.
    How is this going to work?

    Any ideas?
