Seems to me we have two positions that aren't that far apart but due to various reasons the conversation has devolved 
into something less worthy of a public discussion than most of what I see on Bugtraq.  FWIW I'm in the camp of "ship 
the software with secure defaults" but at the same time I agree that Reindl makes a valid point when he asks what 
exactly one means by "secure" (even if I don't agree with his reasoning in this case).

That said, the conversation has really taken an ugly turn, and I am humbly and only speaking for myself requesting that 
all concerned take some time to cool off, go for a walk (down to the pub if that helps), and come back with a focus 
more on the technical question at hand rather than the emotional response that has been rising to the top.
