Yeah, this comment in the project Wiki makes me feel better already:

        All right, I want to try it out. What do I need to know?

        First and foremost, please do not be evil. Use skipfish only against
        services you own, or have a permission to test.

On a good note though, Michal Zalewski is a well-respected developer, so I
might be willing to give it a chance... against someone else's app. (jk)
