Of course, Matt should correct me if I totally misinterpreted something,
but this should be one of those 'wannahaves' to be put on the backburner
for a while.

Additionally it seems possible to implement a good portion of the TrustedBSD stuff along with the symlink-/filesystem work!? Maybe it's good to put it in there to get a more "native" solution for DF rather then modifying ufs with yet another (suboptimal) patchset.

Or did I get the idea of the new stuff wrong?

Also, note that we're not trying to compete with OpenBSD here.  The

There is always competition and as we germans say: "Konkurrenz belebt das Geschäft" ~ "competition improves business vividly" And you will agree of course, that security is a must-have in any modern operating system.
