perish the thought - and I look forward to the day that vendors write
secure software which is impregnable to all vulnerabilities past and
present.  When that happens, I'll cast away my default deny configurations
and advise other people to do the same.

Until then, though, I hope you understand why I suggest that default deny
is no less sensible a precaution than locking the front door in a busy city.
