I think we should first focus on making the home:* repositories

Initial phase:
Scanning binaries for known problems using some antivirus/rootkit software,
before actually publishing, even in home:* repositories.

I personally do not like this idea much, because it can cause the risk that
people believe that software is "good" if the scanner does not find anything

However, any scanner what helps manually reviewing is of course very helpfull.
