After troublesome install, EnGarde proves it's secure

Isn't it obvious why you can't install on existing partitions? How does EnGarde know there is not backdoor/rootkit/some_type_malware on your current filesystem. This distro is designed for utmost security based on the NSA's SELinux!! Why would they take the chance on your filesystem already being compromised and you saying a week later: "Hey, EnGarde isn't that secure, I have a rootkit on my box". So it makes so much sense to me to format the filesystem to be used. Does anyone else agree?
