I read a paper last night titled "The Geometry of Innocent Flesh on the Bone" (http://www.cse.ucsd.edu/~hovav/).  It 
described a technique similar to return-into-libc.

yes, this is fun stuff :)

Our thesis: In any sufficiently large body of x86 executable code there
will exist sufficiently
many useful code sequences that an attacker who controls the stack
will be able, by means
of the return-into-libc techniques we introduce, to cause the
exploited program to undertake
arbitrary computation.

10 pts to the first person using this approach to dlopen for full
arbitrary execution :)

so which is more useful in practice, NX or ASLR?
