also why should rainbow be used instead of one of the many other sets of 
tools available to distros for locking down a desktop (SELinux, or other 

can/should rainbow be modified to use the LSM hooks so that it can be used 
with standard systems? or is it really doing something that is Sugar 

how should/could rainbow work with non-sugar apps? (normal X learning apps 
running on an XO to use an example raised in another post in this thread)

how should/could apps work around what seems like a rainbow limitation to 
let one binary be used for multiple 'apps' (for example gmail + browse or 
the X desktop wrapper)

sorts of concepts were not even being discussed a year or so ago, and the 
answers are not generally known.
