I fail to see how ACLs are a sound basis to solve the problem that
rexec solves. ACLs, in my view, are a sound basis to solve a different
problem (that of different identities accessing the same resources).
Also, it seems that nowhere in your proposal you state how ACLs should
be integrated into Python: I.e. what objects are protected by ACLs,
and how do you classify the various actions in a Python program as
read/write/execute/modify_acl? E.g. given
3 * 4
Is that read, write, execute, and which ACL(s) is(are) considered?
