So, what you're suggesting, Ron, is that those being interviewed would only
show parts they think they should show? I must admit that example in my last
email was bait...

This simply shows that people with good sense would only bring parts of the
application. How would you know if their reasoning regarded security or if
they knew their solution was a kludge? Seems to me that it's an all-or-nothing
deal if you really want to use it as a judge.
