I did not say "work less carefully", I said "faster" ;)

One good thing to have is a security checklist. Thus security team could
do multi-pass review: quick scan for possible problems (like <?
include($_GET['file']) ?>) and second pass if extension is big and
complex (like fe_user_register, for example).

Actually, if security team have such list, it could be public. This may
increse quality of extensions if authors could check their code against
such list.

far more than our abilities." (A.P.W.B.D.)
