    It's not testing that makes code more secure. Testing verifys the code
    works in production, but testing almost never helps to find security
    issues, and often not even hidden subtle race conditions. Check how many
    security bugs have been found with testing. Just go to bugtraq count
    them. I simply cannot relay on testing for the security part. I will
    relay on testing for everything else but not for this.
