I agree with you anytime..:) . Instead of concentrating on such "security "
issues which is not worth the effort because IF a person intends to put some
malicious code HE WILL put it at any cost even with high security settings
.. :( ... I  would rather suggest to get the API to a stable condition and
make it more straight forward than thinking about security. As i told in my
earlier mail that making a software more secure makes it highly unusable in
a production environment which needs a lot of automation .. just my 2 cents
. :)
