comment Disable NSS LDAP IPv6 (AAAA) lookups
Thanks. It's not address selection per se that I was interested in, but instead the suppression of AAAA lookups.

comment Alternative to Daemontools (djbtools) to supervise unix processes?
+1 It's worth mentioning that the runsv command from runit supports custom controls, so that a restart could be implemented in terms of a daemon's native control binaries.

comment Overriding RPM public key database
@sciurus, for separation of concerns. It's a bit safer, since "verifier1" cannot do the work of verifier2, it's a bit easier to understand, since "verifier1" has only one set of keys, and, depending on the implementation, it's more portable, since I'd just need to migrate one user and its associated keys.

comment How to compact large directories
I think those are rather soft requirements, as the GNU docs for dirent caution that seekdir/telldir may not be reliable. The point about e2fsck is well taken. +1
