>likelihood of being killed by a meteor (1:30K, btw).
Do you mean being hit by lightning? If the lifetime chance of being killed
by a meteor is 1 in 30,000 the annual chance is about 1/100 of that, or
1 in 3,000,000. That would mean that in the US about 80 people a year
would be dying of meteor strikes. I've never heard of one, though. But
lightning does kill roughly that number per year.
More on topic, if one trusts the person who says he has reviewed the code,
that should be good enough. Most folks don't insist on personally
checking a doctor's analysis, or an architect's, or a car inspector's.
