We did not immediately find information to decide on the number of CVE
IDs. Picking a few random frames from
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OSMOTDLrBCQ suggested that
approximately three CVE-2011-#### IDs could be assigned. If anyone has
better information, or even the same information in a text format,
that could be useful (if the CVE-2011-#### IDs are needed).
