Introducing: restricted-workers library, version 0.1.0.

This library provides an abstract interface for running various kinds
of workers under resource restrictions. It is being developed as part
of the interactive-diagrams project and you can read more about the
origins of the library in my GSoC report:

The library provides a convenient way of running worker processes,
saving data obtained by the workers at start-up, a simple pool
abstraction and a configurable security and resource limitations.

Right now there are several kinds of security restrictions that could
be applied to the worker process:

- RLimits
- chroot jail
- custom process euid
- cgroups
- process niceness
- SELinux security context

You can read more about the library on the wiki:

The library has been uploaded to hackage and you can install it using
