Mostly theoretical, although we got a supposedly security-related mail
about that issue (ref https://bugs.gentoo.org/show_bug.cgi?id=446986)

Agreed, but some people keep playing with guns and complain when they
hurt themselves :)

So, well, yes to some extent it's an imaginary problem I agree, but the
code does have a problem and it stares back at me each time I pass
through build.c :)
But no, it's not an issue everyone keep complaining about.
