Unfortunately, Debian is not limited to use as a single-user environment so 
you may need to revisit the security implications.  At the very least, you 
may want to warn the administrator that it is not suitable for multi-user 

Any reason task-spooler can't secure it's sockets the same way ssh-agent 
and/or gpg-agent secure theirs?
