One more addition: I will only send a rebased patch series after
all patches have been reviewed.
As a proof of concept I can go on and add more dependencies and
package panopticon ( if that's what's
needed for acceptance? As written above, I will do it anyway
after the patches are in. it would just add 12 - 40 (depending on
how much dependencies of dependencies I'd need) more patches, so
this current patch series is more friendly.
