Wow. They've reinvented another flavor of process groups. Kind of like the old AFS PAG, but it tracks resource allocations instead of tracking authentication tokens. And then there's the keyring based implementation of process authentication groups that OpenAFS is moving toward and that NFSv4+ (and any other externally hosted authenticated resource) is going to need. I'm sure there are others. How many different ways of grouping processes do we need, and does some of this code overlap?
