No one is perfect, least of all me.  I just wanted to clarify for
academic/educational purposes lest someone take away the wrong
understanding of the issue.  I however am not qualified to get into the
collective heads of Apple developers, but evidently security is not as
high a priority within Apple as many would like to believe.  And I do
think it comes down to a matter of priorities, so much so that I doubt
any real testing of their SSL implementation happened.
