So, for instance, lwn.net might offer such a service to its subscribers.
It's not a bad idea, but like all other attempts (e.g. mine) to make
it more secure to install third-party software, people will
criticize it for being incomplete (e.g. they will point out ways
that it doesn't protect the user enough).
