gated is one of those pieces of software that should _never_ be
installed by default. It is for people who already exactly know what
they are doing _only_. Someone who needs to ask what gated is does not

activated by default. Put several of those boxes on a network and have
only one of them slightly misconfigured, and everything gets messed
