This is all very true... a careful reading of news reports about hacks
(even in contests) reveals that unprotected or insecurely designed web
applications may be responsible for more site cracks than you'd
normally think.

That being said, you could implement the source viewing extension with
zero programming by using the sample view-source application and one
apache rewrite rule to do the following transformation on the uri: 

/foo/bar.xmls -> /view-source?filename=/docroot/foo/bar.xml
