I very much want and intend to use both user namespaces and seccomp2
together.  Speaking in terms of the old userns implementation, once
a container has been created, no child of my task will change uid/gid
or gain/move capabilities in the original user namespace.  But they're
free to do so at will in the child user namespace.  Since the capabilities
are targeted at the child namespaces, that's fine.  And as Eric noted
the user namespaces will allow us to increase the attack surface, but
at the same time I'm hoping to offset that somewhat using seccomp2.
