I think this packages which are invasive to users should be opt-in.
They should be *visible* nonetheless.

Also, I think nonprism should only contain the hardened packages.
This would mean less work for parabola packagers and
a lesser margin of error for the users.

Or we could provide an easy but optional way (with a small added
overhead) to temporarily use an insecure way where needed.

install files should be a good way to let the users know.
