Hear, hear!

Consider also the position of someone who writes their own product
code -- if potential exploits are know to exist with specific Zope
functionality, it may be desireable to make design changes to
compensate.  Or at least, we know to pass that information on to
users of our products.  Not knowing puts us in a very uncertain
position -- which I think is far worse for Zope's reputation than any
specific set of known defects.  What's more, that reputation may
rub off on the rest of us. ;-)

"Uncertainty" is the "U" in "FUD", remember.
