1. Please use attachments, not inlining if possible. It's easier for us
and avoids nasty problems. Like tab->space conversion which occured here.
2. We can't (again) change arguments from char ** to const char ** or
const char * const *. At least we have to carefully evaluate such
changes. It would be a bit easier here, since the capability interface
is not SUS.
