This is a really bad idea, even if you could get it to work you'd be
blowing away loads of security in Interchange to accomplish it, we're
not just talking about poking a small hole in security to accomplish
what you want, we're talking about blowing away massive amounts of it.

Tell us what you're trying to accomplish and maybe we can come up with a
better solution that doesn't require compromising your entire box at a
root level to do it.
