The only serious security issue is a "documentation bug". Step 4 of
the install instructions say to add "xhost +" to the
end of /etc/profile. That is not necessary with Fl_TeacherTool 0.2
and "xhost" is a big security hole.

If you have installed Fl_TeacherTool, just remove the "xhost +"
line from /etc/profiles.

I created packages for Fl_TeacherTool and added them to the K12LTSP
repositories for anyone who wants to play with it. It is pretty slick ;-)

 	yum install fl_teachertool
