This is an argument in favor of monocultural system configuration.
To be secure Hamakor's server should have sufficiently unorthodox
configurations that if someone breaks into the system, it will be
difficult for him to find his way in the system.

If this means chrooting, then I am in favor of chrooting.
If Debian or Fedora do not support this style of working, then it may be
a good idea for the person maintaining the system to develop
improvements to the packaging systems and offer them as patches.

I too want to differentiate my stock Debian Sarge installation and make
it difficult for viruses, worms and Trojan horses find their way around
my system.
