Paul, I would agree with you that this would make a nice addition, but the 
last I read about Bastille, they were specifically targeting RedHat 6.x, and 
ignoring the rest of the world. Things may have changed, I don't recall how 
long ago that was, but you might want to research what platforms 
Bastille supports first.
