Just a note here. "Everybody" is "one who is skilled in the art" (of computer programming on Unix and Linux systems). That isn't most sysadmins. It's perhaps most sysadmins I hang out with, but it's not most out there. The idea of sysadmins writing system call filters terrifies me from a support perspective :)

Yeah, I thought the whole idea behind seccomp was that developers would add sandboxing to their own programs. Adding it as yet another sysadmin-configurable knob seems like exactly the wrong direction to go.
