But just the one, eh?  I guess we'll have to keep working on you to attain
full repetence.

What I proposed was nearly identical to this, but in my plan you need
host-priv to fetch the right as well as to set it.  I can't think off hand
of a reason it really matters, but it might be useful for proc to know that
the send rights it uses in this way are private capabilities that noone but
proc could ever have.
