  I think that only an unstable/experimental distro can have file capabilities,
because this feature is not present in the standard kernel and it exists only
as an unofficial, highly experimental patch. Even more, this patch is not
POSIX compliant, which is probably the main reason for which it's not in the
kernel yet.
  So, I agree it's good to have, but I will not patch my kernel with this until
it's proven stable and ready for a production usage.
