whenever i made a sucker bet with somebody about the root not getting
signed i put a timelimit on it. i once bet steve $20 it wouldn't be signed
by january 1 of some year that seemed futuristic at the time, so i took his
money like it had wings. most people wouldn't take the bet. the trick was
to never say never, 'cuz i knew i'd end up paying off somehow someday.

indeed. and let's give credit where due -- because there are still no
external applications that add value in the face of this metadata, the
biggest reason we finally have a signed root and growing cadre of signed
tld's and sld's is because of... dan kaminsky's bug.
