I took a look at this is and it's such a small and low risk thing, I
think it's pretty harmless to give an exception to.  I'd probably say
the same for all new VIF types.  I'm happy to review this one (I pretty
much already did just looking into it).  If there are others that need
review, I'm happy to review those as well.
