try to convince lennart of that. when i suggested to add kdeinit-like
functionality to systemd his response was "no way". and if we ignore
systemd, we'll lose in the longer run.
the selinux guys and some others hate us for kdeinit anyway.
regarding nvidia, they know about the issue and have been enlightened
about its severity? btw, why cannot non-pic libs be prelinked? works
for non-pie executables, after all.
