Well, I'd just be happy to hear from ports maintainers at security-team@
or even freebsd-security at . I think there is a lot of room for fruitful
discussion in this area, not in the least regarding the appropriate
mechanism to use to implement such `options'. I will be very happy to
see what Michael comes up with for artswrappers, and for myself I intend
to investigate various X11-related bits that were brought up previously.
After we see what is good for a few test cases, then maybe we would be
ready to add some guidelines to the Porter's Handbook about handling
ports with set-user-ID bits.
