"'Despite my heart-felt feelings that we should support
different people in trying out different things, one of the issues
is also that I'm obviously not myself a security person. I can
'decree' all I want, but in the end, I really want the people
*involved* to merge security stuff,' Linus Torvalds explained
during the ongoing discussions surrounding the Linux Security
Modules code. He added, 'there's the 'core LSM hooks' on one side,
but there's also the 'what modules make any sense at all to merge?'
on the other, and I really don't have the expertise to make any
sensible judgments except for the pure 'process' judgment that we
should not hardcode things to just one module...!'"
