    It would certainly need some trivial tweaking (to be specific we'd need
    to move from capable(x) to capable_syscall(x, syscall_code) for those
    interfaces that mattered, but that would probably be a good thing anyway
    from the point of view of beating the capability model into something more
    flexible and would help stuff like SELinux as well I think.

    We have an underlying separation of security from the other details - we
    really should keep it clean that way.
