If this is a real risk for you, you should be using per-process limits 
to make sure that the host can't be completely destroyed. Sure, zope 
will fall over when it hits the limit, but that's better than taking 
out the whole host.

Yes, the existing bugs should (and probably will) be addressed as
they're found, but as a belt-and-braces kinda thing, limits are also
useful.

That's really a separate issue that is a zope corp thing to address...
