Not that I can see off-hand. It is only a socket, a means for
communicating with Zope. The 'risk' would only lie in Zope's Security
mechanisms. ;-)

The only possible risk would be a DoS type manuever if random user could
rewrite the pcgi.soc socket. You could control this through var
directory permissions, will try this out and report back.
