It mostly works, and whatever slowdown Rosetta adds isn't really noticable,
Condor isn't CPU-intensive.
The one thing that doesnt work very well is running Condor as non-root,
because of the task_for_pid() change to the Mach kernel. Because of the
new tfp policy settings, we can't track processes unless Condor is
root or a member of the procview group - even if they're the same uid.
This is disappointing, and we're not sure what we're going to do yet.
