I didn't mean this as a personal attack. I just found that statement to
be off i.e. it seems to imply that PaX/grsecurity are low quality and
that they need to be improved to upstream them, when IMO what really
needs to happen to just making the features more politically acceptable
even if it ends up making them harder to implement / less useful.
