I would be glad to act as the focal point for these.  While I'm actually
not well equiped to DO anything about them, I have worked on security
stuff with 386BSD and NetBSD in the past.

In another life, I've also been a security manager at a Major Command 
for a large arm of the US Department of Defense.
