I know we are used to dealing in internet-time, where
things happen instantly, but there could be many reasons
that the host count is only 1612.  Reasons that have
nothing to do with the specific outcome of how these
security issues are handled.

I am certainly all for the improvements people have
been talking about.  I'm just saying that even if you
make all those improvements, you're probably going to
have to wait a few weeks before we see any significant
number of hosts show up.  That's just the way it is.
