    Is subdomain going to be released under the GPL anytime soon?
    And is there any reason you can't use the capabilities check for these
    hooks, like SELinux does?  From what I remember, SubDomain didn't check
    these hooks in the past with any finer-grained access rights from what
    capabilities would give you, or am I forgetting things?
