   Possibly.  I need to look at BUGS some more and combine the
information within with the SECURITY CONSIDERATIONS info, and
delete it as the FreeBSD Security Architecture (FSA) is

   The Security Architecture is being initially handled by other
people on the TrustedBSD Project.  As it is initially being
written and as we discuss it I will make the decisions as to what
should stay in the man page and what should be changed into "See
the FSA".  This, of course, will hinge on whether sufficient
information covering the issue is added to the FSA document.

   However, much of the printf-specific information (for example, %n)
will definitely get merged into the SECURITY CONSIDERATIONS

   In the end, I am 99.9% certain the only remaining BUGS
paragraphs will be the first one and the last one.
