> Oh, no! Let's rewrite the kernel then.
The kernel is a prime example of what I'm talking about. There have been so many vulnerabilities that they don't even bother to document them any longer.
And of course it's impossible to rewrite it in a safer language simply due to the amount of work that has gone into it, so we'll have to live with that. But that doesn't mean we should be making the same old mistakes again and again.
