Just found it.  

It is used?  It looks kinda complex.  It has this idea of a 'valid'
snapshot that I don't really like.  I'd prefer to use a heuristic: all
files suid root and those in specified directories must be signed.
Or, all ELF files must be signed.

Anyway, I'm just kicking this around right now.  My original intention
was not to implement some sort of security tool.  It's a devilish
field since there's always someone out there with another way to foil
