Re: [Libguestfs] [PATCH] appliance: Ignore unreadable dbus helper programs.

This avoids an error where the appliance cannot start up because this
dbus helper script (which is never used) is unreadable by non-root.

Why do we have unreadable binaries in Fedora at all?  You may wonder:


Maintaining a blacklist like this is generally a bad thing.  We should
change this code so it automatically detects when a binary is going to
be unreadable.  However I'd like to keep an eye on this list so we
don't blacklist something which is necessary for the appliance to run.
