That's not what I said. I said that the decision will not be made by "a
developer." Such a decision will be made after considering many factors.
Besides the security issues, the economic analysis will be very important.
That is, you could have one fast scanner that would make any potential
advantage of dividing the work superfluous. But that will cost more. We
have to look at the trade-offs. And if you have one fast scanner, you'll
probably have to have a backup. and so on and on and on.

I think you described the basic modules needed. The first one Jan could
finish in about 5 minutes if you asked him pretty please.

Thanks.
