Yes, that exactly what I was thinking, though there's some issues:

1. The tester must have some sort of Lab so he/she can do pen-testing 
without having legal trouble (brute-force, port-scan, sniffing. auditing 
apps, etc can be illegal without permission ...).

2. I've noticed that ABRT is not included in Security Lab spin, which 
make life harder to report bugs, especially for non-experienced.
