Well, that isn't in this one and from the history on GitHub it never was. What you wrote wouldn't work unless you ran as root, but you have a point. I've edited the link to point to a specific commit on GitHub, one that I've reviewed as not running any malicious code this way. The GitHub project is here, but you've spoiled the surprise now :wink:

Sorry about that :)
