After today's exercises i'd like to add:

`sed,c` -- set CPU affinity; maybe some free CPU choice is needed also:
`sed,c[0]` stick to CPU 0
`sed,c[1]` to CPU 1, another form
`sed,cpu[1]`


If one day address space randomization will be freely available, thus
adding useful security feature, but adding burden of random number
generation, good (i.e. slower) random number generation, obviously
flexible run-time configuration of this stuff on exec time will be
needed.

`sed,rnd[-]`
`sed,r[+]`

set +r -- switch off ASLR
set -r -- switch on ASLR

more common extended format:

set -F[r], set +F[rnd], set +F[asr]

Of course if any execve() kind with this, "light-weight process" or
any other performance/size options will be implemented by cool kernel
kids, then shell will be ready to exploit it fully.


But flexible configurability run-time or build-time seems not a key here
(everywhere?).



I mean it, not even going into config/build. Now i face with user
interface, that is absolutely dumb and frost-bitten. One must do, type,
repeat, wait for so many stupid things without a hint from UI for help
(command lines, text editors, pagers, browsers)...
