mmhmm. Because there's never been a piece of security-oriented
software developed by security-conscious people with an exploitable
bug in it before.

Perhaps you could perform a proper one, and send your findings along.

Because you seen unable to grasp that some bugs are subtle, or that
the idea of what is dangerous (or exploitable) might possibly be
changing with time.
This might shock some people, but auditing is not a panacea.
But if you'll excuse me, I have some code to read. Perhaps you could
do the same, instead of merely complaining about what an awful job we
are doing of it?
