in reply to To taint or not to taint?

If your world is limited, and almost all you do is being a web monkey, by all means, drone yourself to always use taint.

I only use taint if my program has to potential to do something the caller isn't able to - and if the caller is potentially hostile. But I write a large numbers of programs that run under the same privileges the user already has.

I think one should always think whether you should use taint mode or not. And use it when appropriate. Neither "always use taint" nor "never use taint" appeals to me.

[Corion]: holli: Ooof :)
[hippo]: Cut should beless than 20% after tax, though. :-)
[Corion]: hippo: Yeah, but at least two years ago, it still was close enough to 20% cut
[Corion]: But I have a very positive experience with a four day workweek and a three day weekend. I can't easily go back though to full money.
[Corion]: That is easy without having to pay for a house, a wife or children though. If I had any of these, or any two of these, the decision wouldn't be that easy.
[ambrus]: wait. I understand no wife and children, but how do you not have to pay for a house?
[hippo]: I had a low-paid job about 20 years ago and seriously considered going down to a 3-day week. Would have worked 60% of the time for about 80% of the cash.
[Corion]: ambrus: Well, I pay rent, but don't own a house with variable/ unforeseeable costs
