PAUSE apparently runs in a chroot jail, so the only folks likely to be bitten by a version string attack would be smoke testers.

Sounds like smoke testers should be running their smoking in a chroot jail, too. Maybe chroot jails need to be easier to set up ...

My criteria for good software:
  1. Does it work?
  2. Can someone else come in, make a change, and be reasonably certain no bugs were introduced?
