I know this is really a niggle but there are UNIX packages which create
needless holes in the system. For example the ever popular :-) SoftWindows
package which provides for MS Windows emulation under UNIX runs as SU ROOT
so it can grab raw 802.3 packets from the LAN, a fact which it dosn't
exactly shout about in the manuals, although it is mentioned. <yes the
whole package not just a small stub>. I am sure that there are other
examples waiting to trap the unwary UNIX system admin.
