not a troll, but why have these been modified? as they are general
userspace programs with no special priviledges, IMHO it seems like
very poor design to be modifying them to increase security.

IIRC: thay are modified to allow user to show/find/store/restore some
of the extra file 'flags/privileges' used by security modules.
