Feel free to open bugs with upstream software if you think they need
fixing. If they need to be replaced, feel free to open bugs here and
suggest adequate replacements.

Of course we want to reduce the quantity of software running as root. As
such, as soon as it is feasible to run X.org without the setuid bit set,
we will.

Our dhcp3 packages provide an AppArmor policy which greatly reduces the
risks of running it as root.
