Well it's going to take a little more than tweeking some flags. In fact, RPCs will
be necessary to actually *use* any sids. That work is in progress but it is still
going to take some time.

A program should be written to  model the concepts of the task it
performs rather than the physical world or a process because this
maximizes the  potential for it  to be applied  to tasks that are
conceptually similar and, more  important, to tasks that have not
yet been conceived.
