Cost/benefit.

There are always going to be security holes in anything we make. We can be a bank and focus two feet ahead on making sure everything is as secure as possible, or stay aware of security (and not do anything stupid) while moving fast enough that any flaws are irrelevant/fixed when exposed.

It also highly depends on how much risk you're willing to accept. For the average rails app, absolute security is not as important as moving fast. Be an adult and make adult decisions about your tools and processes to suit your circumstances.
