Re: heck, the way things are going

Industry average for "good quality" software: 1 defect per 1000 lines of code. Source: http://www.net-security.org/secworld.php?id=14871

OpenSSL source code: approx. 500,000 lines of code.

So four down, 496 bugs to go. And that is assuming the people adding "features" aren't putting them back in faster than they can be found.
