these commands, we had to turn them all off after a security audit.

So is using an alternative to those commands, apparently private features that would do effectively the same thing, somehow better for any of the auditors, programmers, users, the security\integrity of the requesting system, the security\integrity of the target system? If so, then in what ways? Seems to me that if the target system was insecure prior to the access to those features being denied, then the same exposures remain at the target; being denied those methods still leaves any other possible exploits... presumably even including the private replacements.
