I'm not likely to have a lot of time, but I just wanted to put this out as a reminder that
there is community interest.

Why don't we use the current vulnerabilities with a severity of 'none'?  It isn't that there
is no security concern, it is simply a security concern of the administrator.

My planned 1st step are the appropriate edits to the httpd manual.  After the docs
pages are modified, we have something to point users at, much like the section on
how followsymlinks is not a secure feature.
