 g30rg3x, I like how you looked at this scenario from another direction,
 still most people will not understand or appreciate the privacy
 implications, and yet another option is usually a bad solution.
 Pishmishy's arguments seem sound as does the previous discussion.

 I have flip flopped a little on this issue since I first started
 appreciating it a year ago. Although you don't want to advertise an open
 window to thieves, on the web it is trivial to brute force checking each
 window. I also like the version being there b/c friends don't let friends
 run old versions of WordPress ;-)
