Sorry for the slow reply, I've spent the last month camping in a tent and
it was wonderful.

The privsep transition isn't complete in Nova, but it was never intended to
be in Queens. We did get further than we envisaged and its doable to finish
off in Rocky.

That said, I feel like we have a nice established pattern for what we think
works now, and the changes are largely mechanical -- the holdups tend to be
when you encounter some weird history in the codebase that needs to be
unravelled along the way.

That said, I don't think we're proposing to remove rootwrap entirely, it
would still be a supported mechanism for launching the privsep helpers.
