That most likely has been the case in the past.  But I
really think that the most threatening security flaws
that we will face in the future will be by design, not
by error.  Of course, the bugs you point to will not
go away and anything that will help will be
appreciated.  We just have to develop a way of doing
so that does not relinquish the design of our systems
to agencies with an agenda.
