OY! For a second, I thought it meant "defaults to assuming an insecure environment", but no, it defaults to NO SECURITY.

How does this differ from the juggling chainsaws that is a superuser for example on a Unix-like OS (even just regular user where you can trash your own files, if not everyone else's)?

Get out of my way, because I know what I'm doing - which would be the case in all the sites I've built for example. What it does do is give you a choice so if you intend to allow people to build on top of a template you've written, you can limit what they do.
