"If it didn't have a long history of security problems, this might not be such a bad thing, but..."

Don't conflate reported issues found because of good auditing, with weak security. For the majority of cases, using a lesser audited or DIY platform attempting the same level of functionality as WP will run the risk of having *more* bugs & holes. The problem is when you start running all sorts of poorly audited third-party plugins.

As a SysAdmin, I've had far more issues with developers' in-house DIY CMS than I have with a properly configured WP.
