This *has* been the biggest problem for a long time, but most systems
seem to have overcome the issue of e.g. I have a bout of hayfever, and
now my eyes are watery and I can't be verified by the iris-checker (or
have a cold, or have drunk too much, etc etc).

As far as security goes, client-side = = no security (c.f. I think on
Raph's site? a good article of lessons-learnt including something
along the lines of "any client-side security will be broken").
