On the other hand, isn't it somewhat analagous to hiring 24/7 armed security guards and installing a state of the art 
physical security system in a museum, and passing and enforcing strict laws against grand larceny?

The "secure coding" alternative would be for museums to stop displaying priceless art works.

Subject: [External] [SC-L] Sad state of affairs

I was just listening to a podcast interviewing a security executive from a prominent vendor.  The response to 
vulnerabilities was to raise the cost/complexity of exploiting bugs rather than actually employing secure coding 
practices.  What saddened me most was that the approach was apparently effective enough.
