If only it didn't require running untrusted, binary code with superuser

- mdz

This is exactly why the source to tltrace is freely available for download

Thanks for the pointer.

Where is this linked from the site? I can't find it. Also,
why is the version number different from the binary archive
(traceloop-0.12a.tar.gz)? It might be a good idea to provide a link to this
archive in the introductory email, for those of us who aren't running
Linux/i386. You might even get some help in the way of portability fixes.
