Ok, then please enlighten me on how you would have an clean room
environment for production or testing of each build?

#!/opt/sandbox-1.0/bin/perl and then perl -p -i -e at every version change?

I couldn't care less about what people with their wits about them do,
I blame that for the popularity of PHP.  I care about what works and
is programmatic, reproducible, clean, easy to document and understand,
that -may- have the potential for a security hole but only if there is
unrestricted access to the application.
