you forgot about this part which is also featured in the FAQ:
-- snip --
!!!! BUT STAY TUNED !!!!
This is a *BIG* security risk! *NEVER* do this on a server or on a
computer that you do not control
completely because other users can gain root privileges through SUID
!!!! SO YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED ... !!!!
-- snip --
of course risk is quite low, but i think posting "chmod +s something"
should include some warning, shouldn't it?
PS: maybe i'm wrong, didn't sleep much the last days...
