as i've already mentioned, i'd like to shield kdm somewhat from the
well-meaning, but usually ill-advised contributions, but i always found
a real acl a bit too harsh.
even nearer the core, i think the kate devs *might* want such a thing,
but i won't bet.
further out, i think some extragear projects might want it for the sake
of their autonomy.
anyway, we won't know until we present the idea to a wider audience.
which probably shouldn't happen anytime soon, as everyone who is willing
to do some actual work should be probably doing something else
