Noodling the value proposition of static analysis and wonder if vendors
in this space are doing the right thing. For example, Gary McGraw was
one of the first to point out insecure APIs within Java such as readLine
not having a parameter to indicate max read. Is there merit in vendors
figuring out how to perform same function within commercial products?
For example, there are insecure APIs in IBM MQ/Series, Struts, Spring,
etc. 

Is there merit in collecting this type of information as a new OWASP
project?
