Sure, that's what I understood in the former message, and already thought
of doing it. The problem that I have (maybe it wasn't clear in my message)
is that then I give an "obvious" *permanent* entry point to a network that
is willingly closed. If anything happens (even if I'm quite confident with
the security of the machine, we never know), it's my responsibility, and I
don't want that.
