 Replying to [comment:4 gk]:
 > The current idea is to use the SocksSocket option + confinement (e.g.
 done by AppAmor).

 Note that socket mediation with AppArmor is currently only available with
 out-of-tree kernel patches, that are only applied in Ubuntu (and perhaps
 OpenSUSE and/or hardened Gentoo) AFAIK. FTR, the Canonical guy who is
 working on having these patches in mainline Linux is John Johansen
