Perhaps these developers should rethink the design and protocols of
their apps - or pay the price for a stupid design which relies on heavy
IPC traffic (and usually - sooner or later - heavy network traffic).
Or - at least - deliver a (technical!) proof why this isn't feasible.

The case of "patching the kernel to lie about the kernel's command line"
just because some ill-designed user-space daemon misused it" was bad
enough and the above smells quite similarly.

Kind regards,
