This got me tinking: Is there a place in the suckless philosophy for
security? (However one wants to define that). Small code base can't mean

I for one, love suckless software, but I want "security" as a basic
feature, too.

I do want more complexity in slock to work around this (or another)
keypad issue. And I want slock to stay on top no matter what other
clients want.

I also really like sic and ii, but without extra code for SSL, I won't
use it.

Has the general problem been discsussed before?
