That's simply not the focus of FPC, nor should it be, necessarily.

I don't think that's exactly right. On server-distros there typically 
ARE more security features enabled.

That's a luser problem, but I somewhat agree with your point.

Anyway, this is a pretty dead horse. Let's hope Andrew Morton can help 
us solve this the right way - in the kernel.
