    SubjectRe: Filesystem Capabilities in 2.6?
    A call from left field:

    As a sys-admin I love the idea of the capabilities, but I hate this mount
    --bind thing. I'd really rather see it have its own command name. If it were
    strictly something that happens at mount time for a filesystem that'd be one
    thing, but

    >mount --bind --capability=xx,yy /usr/bin/foo /usr/bin/foo

    looks like a mistake.

    If you were loop mounting the binary into the user's directory, then I could
    see using mount.

    This would be clearer:

    setcap -c xx,yy /usr/bin/foo

    (I also have nothing against long option names.)

    The end is a finish, a conclusion or a completion. -- -- KB1FVD
