I decided to hold off on extra controversy for awhile.  However:

https://git.kernel.org/?p=linux/kernel/git/luto/linux.git;a=commit;h=9a520b74ad5dc14a3d6950b6d63a64714adbdd7d
and
http://web.mit.edu/luto/www/linux/nnp/newns.c

I fully intend to resurrect both of those once nnp lands.

(FWIW, I think that CLONE_NEWPID interacts badly with unix socket
credentials and should be fixed as a prerequisite for making it easier
to access.)
