Nice thinking, Donnie. This must be the "new class of vulnerability"
that was hinted at by Microserfs a few months ago... The attacks are
launched by way of source code distributions rather than binary code.

  Why is this a terrible insecure microsoftism, when GNU make does exactly 
the same?

  And let's never forget those evil 'configure' scripts.  Hell, at least 
they actually *have* been an attack vector on several occasions.

    cheers,
