Which is still difficult, since I use the debian package of rt
currently. So I would either have to create second package rt and use
other dirs in it, because the files are split over / (config in /etc,
binaries in /usr and databases in /var). Also that way I would have to
create a second database, name it different and make sure that the
second rt process only access that one. I think that's a lot of work and
lot of points for failures, so either having two rt's on two different
hosts or one rt and then use the acl's would sound like a lot less work
then this.
