I'd say this message should be kept, possibly reworded.

While setcap is overall a good thing, it can be surprising to sysadmins, as
it can be broken by a number of actions that worked until now, such as rsync
without -X.

A MAP07 (Dead Simple) raspberry tincture recipe: 0.5l 95% alcohol, 1kg
raspberries, 0.4kg sugar; put into a big jar for 1 month.  Filter out and
throw away the fruits (can dump them into a cake, etc), let the drink age
at least 3-6 months.
