IMO, it is "different enough" to be called BS2000. And no, I don't think
that is a security risk.
I ought to clear that up with my boss, of course ;-)
(Anyway, there's always the possibility to disable it. And I'd prefer if
it could be disabled at run time because we distribute binary versions
and so the end user has no control over it any more unless it's a run
time configuration item).
