Very good to see progress in this field. I'm not familiar with the
technical details yet, but this seems an important security feature imho.

How does this patch relate to the one at ?

I do think the LD_PRELOAD / LD_LIBRARY_PATH problem (also described by

remain marked EXPERIMENTAL until that's resolved.

Kind regards,
