Chainfire (of SuperSU fame) has a post about changes coming up in the
next major Android version that could cause some trouble for Guardian
apps that exec binaries as root from the /data/ dir:
"A recent commit to the AOSP master tree prevents the unconfined
domain(everything you run through su by default) from executing files
located on the /data partition."
There are supposedly some workarounds, but I haven't looked into them yet.
