That is always a possibility. But i have a stable hub on a good connection
and a alt-hub if that one goes down. I'm really willing to take a chance
with that rather than to have my userfile cracked on some remote shell.

Minor userfile is ok as long as it doesnt store any passwords and is synched
to the real userfile.

My idea is generally to make the eggdrops less induvidual and more of one
mind. If the hub (the big one mind) dies, try an alternitive one or die. I
just want these "untrusted drones" to work without comperemising my whole

Thanks for the input.
