I'm sorry, didn't want to sound rude and I really appreciate what you 
are doing for Wordpress. I just didn't _see_ the full extend of this 
little incident. People who don't know better - most of them - really 
freak out fast if some high instance speaks of vulnerabilities in their 
favorite piece of software.

And I agree. One word from Matt would be really helpful now. People 
start not believing me it's safe, even if I let them execute the posted 
exploit on their own blog :-) ... maybe they believe Matt :-)
