My program checks for target architecture.  For all the other cases,
they all boil down to `Program can not be executed for XXX reason'.
And this is easy to do: exec the file, if you come back from exec, you
know there was a problem, popup dialog window.

If you see the code I posted, it does exactlly that.

A warning is better than no warning and letting a user just set the
bit himself.  The only way of having a fully secure system is to sign
every executable ever ran by the operating system, and put this check
into the kernel.  And disable modules as well.

That is how I implemented it.
