This might be a good compromise to get network services hardened
without changing the default build system.  Is there a plan for which
packages to convert first?  A patch for my netplan package would be
most welcome. :) I guess starting with the most popular ones is a good
idea, and realise netplan is not one of these. :)

Personally I would prefer the build default to change instead, and a
mechanism to disable in per package for those that can't use the
hardening defaults, but realise it might be a risky path to take.

Happy hacking,
