Yeah, but if it is someone else's box (hosted on a host site), then the coder
probably never had access to root in the first place.  If it is a box worth
hosting on, then it would be protected and only the mud would have to be checked
thoroughly.  Even so, this wasn't a flame, just an opinion so just in
case....don't take it that way :P

Love ya all :)
