    I think the important thing is for the kernel to provide the functionality
    that 99% of the people will need, and then for userspace tools/daemons to
    hide the complex portions and make it easy for a user to get what he wants.

    /proc is not nearly a valid user interface, but it is one of the
    application interfaces.
