[Plugin: Better WP Security] Modifying wp-config.php on activation causes 'headers already sent (1 post)

    When I activate the plugin, it modifies my wp-config.php and .htaccess by adding blank lines to the files.

    First of all, no plug-in should modify ANY user files without explicit confirmation from the user.

    Second, a blank line at the beginning or end of the wp-config.php file causes a "headers already sent" error. See: http://codex.wordpress.org/FAQ_Troubleshooting#How_do_I_solve_the_Headers_already_sent_warning_problem.3F

    Third, adding blank lines to the beginning of the .htaccess file causes problems with other plug-ins (BulletProof Security in my case).

    I hate having to clean up my install after a plug-in messes it up.
