I don't have the cpu capacity of even building my own system but I would
be interested how stable those guarded binaries are.
We thought about using them at work but decided against it since the
program is so unknown.
I would second a proposal of building a "test" distribution on one of
the public-servers and maybe somewhen (when harddiscs get cheaper :-))
distribute a stack-guarded distribution or at least guarded network
daemons (ftp,finger,smtp,http etc)
