[Nikto-discuss] Suggestion about scanning selection.

This is a good suggestion in theory and would be trivial to implement *if*
we had the data for when a vulnerability was originally published.

For any vulnerability which has an associated OSVDB ID (which is many, but
not all--a quick grep says ~1400 don't have IDs), we could get the data. But
even then, generic entires such as /admin/ would not have an associated

In any case, we could probably work around generic entries if we had the
data. Anyone who wants to match up all those tests w/o OSVDB IDs is very
welcome to!
