    This issue has been bantered around for almost a month now, and it seems that when they are addressing the future of the security in the Kernel, many different issues are still developing. As he states in the article: Last night, another developer, Thomas Fricaccia, urged that "a free and open operating system should preserve as much freedom for the end-user as possible. ... 'Freedom' includes the power to do bad things to yourself by, for example, making poor choices in security frameworks. This possible and permitted end result shouldn't be the concern of kernel developers." So how far can this discussion go? Is too much emphasis being placed on the kernel instead of the applications? Will this continue to be discussed this feverishly?
