This is the right time to think over and do something in future security.

This would be for example patching the SuSE-kernel with
http://www.grsecurity.org/ or for minimum http://pax.grsecurity.net/ like
some distributions already did.

This does not help solving any new exploits but makes it a little bit harder
to install not wanted software on servers because only allowed processes are
allowed to work :-)

This may be an optional part, but would improve more, than the "other"
security-patch provided by SuSE.

For me it worked.

Could you please expand on your "For me it worked" statement? Have you
experienced any issues, even minor ones, with standard services like
Samba, Apache, Postfix, etc..
