[K12OSN] vlc localapps can't read in /tmp

Ah! I'll bet vlc is looking on the CLIENT /tmp and not the  SERVER /tmp.

You can set up the server /tmp to be mounted by the clients. I've not
thought through what the performance/security issues will be. I don't see
performance as much of a problem as security is. Things _should_ be
UID-safe as long as all shared-space users originate their security access
(password, master user list on AD or LDAP) from the server.

As long as the general population is passive, apathetic, diverted to
consumerism or hatred of the vulnerable, then the powerful can do as they
please, and those who survive will be left to contemplate the outcome.
