 I just got this after I sent my other email a moment ago.
 I am doing the find immediately before the "check_devices" find in the 
 hope that it will still be cached.
 (This reminds me that many times I have thought it would be useful to have 
 a "multifind" tool that can output to different file handles its results.)
 My plan is to enable by default.
 Checking for world writable files is common and seems like a good addition 
 to the /etc/security. (I think it is more important that some checks 
 already there.)
 Anyone else have a thought on this?
