   The fusermount program is installed set-user-gid to fuse. This is done to
   allow users from  fuse group to mount their own filesystem implementations.
   There must however be some limitations, in order to prevent Bad User from doing
   nasty things.  Currently those limitations are:

   1.     The user can only mount on a mountpoint, for which it has write permission

   2.     The mountpoint is not a sticky directory which isn't owned by the user (like /tmp usually
              is)

   3.     No other user (including root) can access the contents of the mounted filesystem.
