There is no "*THE* application".
Additionally pretty much any web application, reguardless of language, has
the potential for security holes. So changing the framework, does not
definitively eliminate the underlying problem here.

This shows a fundamental non-understanding of what is going on in our web
space (and security, for that matter).

Just as people who arent actually maintaining packages, should not get to
tell active maintainers how to package... I think that people who arent
actually DOING WEB WORK, should not be telling those who are, how to do it.

If people want to actually do work, then great! please speak up with what
area you want to work on. Then after that, talk about how you think the 
working environment could be improved.
