I understand this is why the ebones folks went over kerberos and
removed even the hooks.
On the other hand, if the honest intention wasn't crypto but to have
say per-packet indirect hooks (like streams) I wonder if they
could/would object. It would be a bit like them objecting to pipes
because some evil foreigner might abuse them to put crypto in the
echo hello | mail firstname.lastname@example.org
echo hello | pgp someflags | mail email@example.com
If they can't (or won't) object to the above, then can the same thing
be put into the kernel in the form of pushable modules?
