To consider adopting it for core Fedora (its already in Fedora extras 
fedora.us) someone would need to go through it detail by detail and check
things like all the quoting of input, referrers etc (eg what happens if
my DNS reverse is an expandable regexp, contains $ or ; etc). All those
kind of questions.

Really its probably too late for FC3 now anyway but for the future someone
having been through it with a fine tooth comb looking for holes would be
neccessary because its in part exposed to external data.

Its probably a good treatment for any package exposed to external data
core or otherwise of course
