Are these extensions commonly used to start daemons are interact with 
the network?  Presumably, there are extensions for downloading weather 
data or stock exchange information, but this seems fairly restricted and 
low risk (especially if they use HTTPS, so that the data source would 
have to be compromised to attack installations).
