Sounds like another plug for the book. . . <g>

Use the submission form on the site, DL. . . it would be a great addition.

I myself have been playing with jails and ports alot recently, including 
portaudit, esp after this latest sudo vulnerability. . .  Porteasy will 
be delved into this afternoon. . .

There's a good number of other jail related stuff I've been thinking 
about/discussing with Ike, including some way to deal with striping down 
/dev in a methodical fashion. . . maybe even automated depending on 
pkgs/ports installed. . .
