    IMHO, the "DAC-out" plan doesn't have a snowball's chance in hell.  I put the
    question to Ted just to get a definitive opinion.  Even if Ted does come back
    with "we don't care" (improbable) I still beleive that a solid majority of the
    LSM implementers are opposed to DAC-out.
    I think Richard Offer had it right when he suggested thinking about DAC-out for
    Linux 3.0.  If anything, IMHO, that's the earliest it would be considered.
    Caution: down that road lies Microkernels.  Linus hates microkernels.  Good luck,
    you'll need it :-)
