My motto is "Trust in God, but always run the tests locally." There
are security considerations here, so I make sure that my workflow
always brings external submissions through my own machine where I can
inspect it with a debugger and my own two eyes. I am strongly opposed
to any "farm to market" system since that could lead to being lazy.
