But, how many things have big security risks anyway?  In most cases
the ones to worry about are just the kernel, network daemons, and suid
programs - mostly things with standardized interfaces so backing up a
version or two shouldn't break anything.

Any program that could be run by a privileged account (or even just any
local account) to process data from an untrusted source is a security risk.

I.e., most everything in Fedora.

Are you suggesting that it is feasible to eliminate that risk?
