Cool, that makes sense.

Would you mind adding a trivial patch to your set commenting
cap_issubset() in capability.h?  If you feel it's too outside the scope
of this set I'll send such separately.  Every time I see code using
it, it takes me 5 mins to remember which order they're supposed to be
in...
