        A build demaon is automatically insecure. (think about it --
 if putting a key on the machine is insecure, which you recognize, how
 is an automatic build suddenly secure?)

        Humans are important watchdogs in secure systems. Any purely
 automatic system, unless extreme care is taken, is vulnerable.

 Cobol programmers are down in the dumps.
