If the openbsd people had made a better job of this it would have been
a lot easier to do linux auditing. Not to be taken completely as a criticism
many of the package authors dont understand security anyway or dont care
about it much.

Trying to get the gcc 2.8 tmp file races fixed has proved that even the GNU
people have some serious problems with security priorities at times.
