"Don't let the bastards get you down."

I think what you are doing is important.  Kauth is a providing a framework
for implementing a policy but not the policy itself.  If someone wants
functionality like securelevel, they should implement a securelevel listener
that provides it.

So provide the framework, and let others provide the policy.
