[PEN-TEST] Your Thoughts

I wanted to bounce a question off the list (for my own personal
gratification) today. The last several months I have come across some
companies which seem to be commercially developing applications for
actually breaking into machines/networks, think scanners which actually go
*all* the way for you.
These tools I suspect will be commercially supported items for sale to
governments and consulting agencies. My questions are:
1. As pen testers would you buy a tool like this provided it worked and
2. Do you think this idea will fly when it's brought to market?
3. Does this bother anyone on a moral level?
I would prefer people reply directly to me as I am not performing this as
gratis market research I am simply curious as to what you folks think.
