I'm currently working on packaging Rainbow<http://wiki.laptop.org/go/Rainbow>,
an implementation of the Bitfrost
<http://wiki.laptop.org/go/OLPC_Bitfrost> security
spesification. Rainbow runs user-level desktop applications with the same
level of resource isolation already used with a variety of system daemons,
giving each application instance its own UID, GID, and persistent storage

In order to function, Rainbow requires a NSS module, libnss-rainbow, to be
installed and enabled in /etc/nsswitch.conf.
