This is starting to become an endless discussion with no real outcome.
What Debian does by default should be what most admins do. I'm not going to
get into this discussion anymore, as i think all arguments have been brought
forward too many times. You think 'paranoid' should not be used at all, I
think 'ALL: PARANOID' is not strong enough, but for a default install 'ALL:
ALL' would be too strong.
