When on the topic of setuid child processes, we currently pass quite
lot of info through environment variables. Even though the variables
are private and namespaced (SSS_DEFAULT_REALM for example), I still
think we should get rid of the variables and either use a parameter
(--default-realm) or just pass the info through the pipe..
Yes and we should use secure_getent() throughout the code or we risk
opening up attacks against setuid binaries.
