That's most fair.  I would not want to compromised performance and
scalability with the overhead of security up-front.  I'll hold that
thought until after a 1.0 release.

Compete was the wrong intention/word.  The only competition is with the
goals of DragonFly and not other distributions.  I rather like the notion
of being "hype-free" and not finding ourselves in the habit of doing
something just because somebody else does it.
