it... how many programs do you know of could be fooled into

Software Engineering, Reliability and Security
This application sucks. Yes, it honestly does. It was written by
the *WORST* coder in the world, and as such it is full of security
holes. It's swiss cheese. It makes a pile of tofu look like a
well-audited piece of code. We don't think you should install it,
but because there is demand, we're making it available so that you
can evaluate the program, your use of the program, and your
environment and see if it is appropriate. Go ahead at your own
risk, and feel free to contact the developer to tell them we told
