We have legacy code in Tizen AppFW which relies on setUID facilities to 
launch application and to communicate between Apps.
My current goal is to find a solution which does not require to rewrite 
the entire AppFW in order to remain backward compatible.

Starting with a white sheet of paper, I would not do like that but 
protecting legacy investment is important.
