The way I read the man page, it's possible to set capabilities for a

Do you happen to know which file? I also thought it would be something
like this, but I cannot figure which file it might be. (so I'm leaning
towards extended attributes for an executable or starting with root,
then dropping privileges before exec()ing).

Looks like I might've misunderstood part of the man page as I skimmed
through it - the reference was to an extended attribute for file
capabilities. (the security.capability extended attribute).

That's what I get for skimming and trying to recall rather than reading
thoroughly. :/
