    Sigh.  It is *Emacs* that assumes the world is full of valid data, and
    happily shovels any hazmat it receives on to the next user or program
    without validation.  And you're right, it *is* a security problem.

It is not much of a security problem in Emacs.

The defaults for the standard Guile primitives could be strict,
and the defaults for some Emacs Lisp functions could be flexible.
