Considering the sheer number of WordPress powered blogs that are out
in the wild and how few of them have ever been attacked, I would say
pretty much anything discussed in this thread (except *maybe* strength
indicator) is best suited as a plugin. This is pure conjecture, but
I'd be willing to bet that the percentage of blogs that have ever been
compromised is closer to 0% than it is 1% of the installation base.
