a USE option for this doesn't make a lot of sense in my mind .... think
about it. USE="suid" could be more like USE="hackmenow" ;) The trend
with security is to eliminate this sort of thing, not to encourage it.
That said it's easy enough for you to chmod it, so maybe a simple ewarn
is in order for people that have this concern that they can chmod it if
they desire, but I agree that by default that less with these
permissions are better.
cfengine is the good stuff. Works on OSX too in case anyone cares :)
