Why do it half-arsed? Go with slash :-)

Actually, I've never looked at any of these packages, including slash. I
have written an extensive one myself, but I don't think the company I work
for would like me giving it away :-)

You may want to have a look back through the bugtraq archives - not
looking so much for a lack of entries in there for a particular system (it
might be so shit that noone is using it, so noone could be bothered
auditting it), more looking at the vendor's response.
