    capabilities work - we use them in 2.4 where a helper suid application
    gets the ball rolling, and then its child grants capabilities to new
    clients.

    the problem we have with capabilities is that capabilities are not
    enabled by default in the vanilla kernel, and there seems to be
    considerable advice suggesting that they should not be enabled.
