Ooooh... I'm _so_ going to try that out! Of course I also have to make
sure the kernel doesn't mount the root partition read-only by default,
because running 'mount' to remount it r/w doesn't count as *nothing*
The problem with the world is stupidity. Not saying there should be a
capital punishment for stupidity, but why don't we just take the
safety labels off of everything and let the problem solve itself?
