However, you could rig up an LD_PRELOAD shared library to handle

to, etc.)  It would still be a pain, but would
provide a potentially useful "sandbox" area in which to run an
application, without compromising the integrity of the system
as a whole.

Something which just came up (on slashdot, no less) is libsafe.. it
looks fairly interesting and might be useful for something like this.

LGPL'd to boot.  this would at least maybe prevent the stack-smash-root-
shell-opens-on-port-9999-type programs.
