Hi! I'm interested in getting tcb (http://www.openwall.com/tcb/) support
into shadow. tcb is an interesting project (you can run shadow tools
with less privileges, and it's quite simple), and having a separate
patch to apply is hard to maintain.

Here's the most recent version of the patch I could find:


My plan isn't to just drop this code blob and run away. I'm willing to
split it into smaller chunks, incorporate your review comments etc.

I'm not a developer of tcb, and the project seems to be alive upstream,
but the shadow patch provided by tcb project is outdated. The one I
linked to above is more recent.

What do you think?
