I have an idea for a 'create silo' system call, which works like chroot
- but instead of operating on the filesystem, it hooks into those exact
kauth permissions to isolate a process and it's descendants. It still
wouldn't be a full jail/container, but a decent step forward.
I would happily implement this myself, but the past few years have not
left me with the spare time to try.
