    We have tried doing that, in fact, I have worked on this on and off for
    a while, none of the solutions we came up with are clean enough.

    Very much agreed, I also very much in agreement with wli that the user
    level tool need a major improvement. These CAP_* hook has been in the
    kernel for ages (since 2.4?), but the user land tool seems fossilized.
    Last time I tried libcap (about two weeks ago), it segv on me.
