It wasn't me who wrote that. Moreover, I disagree. Documenting all input
path and following them to make sure that all input data is correctly
validated is not a trivial task even in medium size projects. I'll rather
play safe and add another security step. It is not that input validation is
not needed, but that in case of incorrect validation the users of your
program won't suffer.
