We have discussed this before, but I have never actually got around writing this down.

Debathena, despite being a modern operating system, and despite the fact that it's 2014, still maintains legacy concepts from the days before like local privilege separation. To mitigate that issue I propose that we ship a simple binary, yolo, which executes the command it was asked. Of course, it should have a setuid flag and be owned by root.

For example:

watch yolo dd if=/dev/urandom of=/dev/mem seek=$(($RANDOM * $RANDOM + $RANDOM))
