What prevents other applications from modifying this setting to true if
they want to
spy on applications?
This parameter (or any security-related one) should require root-access
to be changed.
A solution could be to put security parameters in a separate
configuration file that
should be owned by root with access rights set to 644 in order to be
used by weston.
If you have other ways to avoid this problem that do not require
control, I'm interested in hearing them!
