I understand what you say, even empathise a liitle. I am not sure what the
answer is to this conundrum:
Use the 'official' signed version and trust it to act as a firewall; add in
some third-party software and trust the author of that module not to break
I am happy to do this, so long as I understand what the module does, can
inspect its code, and test its functionality. I may be lucky - I do this
stuff for a living - but isn't somebody without the knowledge to do this
putting a lot of (blind) trust in m0n0?
