But IMHO, that *is* the point.  If it's on the Internet, it's exposed . 
. . And if a stored procedure is exposed, then the whole system is 
exposed . . . The following URL (may wrap) points to what *Microsoft* 
has to say about Web services security.  Now, imagine what a "secure" 
stored procedure must look like . . .
