Huh? I have been arguing that the supposed costs of using fine-grained
security are fictitious. I think you've got things backwards.
Moreover, for the last 6 years I have been building software tools that
exploit the potential ease of capability-based programming. One tool,
the Waterken RDB Webizer, even enables non-programmers to build
applications that exploit capability-based security.
There's a lot of material at my website that could help you understand
the ease of programming with capabilities. See:
The web-calculus is the union of REST and capability-based security.
