Hrm. Well, when you put it that way...
But we have the unfortunate problem that enforcing this rule
consistently is something that we have been *not* doing for a very
long time. It's also something that other Unix-like operating
systems have been not doing for a very long time. (And probably
won't start doing any time soon.)
Doing it right sounds great. But maybe with, a little leniency about
the immediacy of the change?
