There's a bigger problem. Say we have a spell at 1.0.0. Security patch updates
it to 1.0.0 SECURITY=yes. Then version 1.1.0 comes out that has this patch
embedded. If we leave SECURITY=yes, we'd have to do this permanently for this
spell. If we make a change SECURITY=no, than a security update may be missed. So
we become "damned if we do, damned if we don't" in this case.

The only secure way to know if a spell needs an update is to use version
comparison as Gentoo does. Using "security" flag is still an incomplete solution.
