Got it.

I think my original intent was to get some feedback on the way I
approached the stacking issue.  Serge has a module that actively stacks
and such, which I don't understand (I should grok that one day through
rigorous reading and reimplementing too), so I decided I wanted to know
how LSM worked, and decided to clone it and put some GrSec stuff on top
of it to test (and to learn how GrSec works), this is what I ended up with.
