comment URLs with variable query strings and cache
Sounds to me like you can see the exact risk you take if you go with query string parameters, rather than a fixed path component. Now the question is, is that risk acceptable, or too high?

comment Is Ken Thompson's compiler hack still a threat?
Fair point. After all, the hack carries along a backdoor for login, and a mod for the compiler, so it can carry a mod for another compiler too. But it becomes increasingly unlikely.

comment How do we make unit tests run fast?
Run a profiler over your tests. It's a fair bet that a small proportion of the tests are much slower than the vast majority. Break those tests down, and mock out slow collaborators.
