    That's true, Bastien, but if for whatever reason it's not an
option for them, what?  Tell them it's tough cookies and they're SOL?

    Our job as programmers - especially freelance - is to make things
happen as safely and securely as we can, but as a bottom line, make it
happen.  I'm sure we (most of us) take the responsibility to
discourage a client from making such choices, and to educate them on
alternatives that are better for their interests, but still - at the
end of the day, we're still just code monkeys.  We're expected to
build what the client needs, or else they'll find someone else to do
it for them.

    And I don't really like to go hungry.  ;-)

If at first you don't succeed, stick to what you know best so that you
can make enough money to pay someone else to do it for you.
