Does the software world need a better way to handle this reputation issue? 
(The rest of the world in general as well perhaps?) Is there any way to build 
a signed binary where this can be checked from within the binary itself? 
Perhaps stick the signature at the end of the binary and have the signing 
routine check all but the area that holds the signature? (Not well thought 
out, just an off the cuff idea.)
