I was under the (apparently very wrong) impression (don't ask my why)
that something like the example that Paul Rubin gave wouldn't be
possible. Now that I've learned that, I take back what I've said. His
code is more beautyful IMO ;-)
The problem with the world is stupidity. Not saying there should be a
capital punishment for stupidity, but why don't we just take the
safety labels off of everything and let the problem solve itself?
