This is certainly an exciting opportunity for us, I think.  The return
of end-to-end gives us the chance to refocus on real security for
access to traditionally "internal" services and not so much on things
that are IP-based.

The "hard outer shell, soft chewy center" model ends up being more
like the Monty Python Crunchy Frog sketch anyway.  =)
