Re: Fun with FUP and root.

I've got a solution that'd allow you to not ever need root
perms in the MOO server and still get low port numbers.  How
about a simple program that runs outside the MOO with root
perms that simple routes from 80 to say 8000 or something
usable by the MOO.  Make the router invisible to both sides
and I think it'd work with a minimal of performance loss, and
a LOT less security loss.
