Hi, all

I wrote a small package noexec, which (I hope)
may be usefull additional to sudo. 
It allow run process, "chieldless", i.e when you run something with sudo you
can be sure no escape to the shell is possible.
Project url is

Any ideas and comments ?


One importent note: it's prevent escape to the shell,
but do not think you can use it to run vi - vi is dangerous not only due to
possible escape to shell
(in the vim it can be prevented with -Z switch), but due to ability to
switch to editing another file (for example, /etc/sudoers)
