I've posted the final versions of a few simple, free shell scripts that i've 
been working on to make data hygiene more convenient on *nix systems. Thanks 
to list members who helped test them and contributed improvements.

Too simple, I'd say. Imagine sensitive file (/etc/shadow?). It is
subsequently freed and now is reused by one-byte /var/something/lock.

No programs I know will wipe this properly, not even on ext2 :-(.

People were complaining that M$ turns users into beta-testers...
