Given that at some point BitShares users will be importing their BTS/PTS and associated AGS private keys into the the sparkle client to claim their genesis sparkle.

Has a trusted BitShares dev review the code to ensure there are no security issues?

I'm sure everything is fine, just being cautious before I fire up the client.

Considering it's a test network I don't know why you'd import any private keys into it yet.

You can diff the two versions on github, I skimmed through it but won't say anything "official":   https://github.com/sparkle5/Sparkle/compare/BitShares:bitshares...sparkle
Do not use this post as information for making any important decisions. The only agreements I ever make are informal and non-binding. Take the same precautions as when dealing with a compromised account, scammer, sockpuppet, etc.

I have implemented a solution in our PTS-DPOS client: https://github.com/PTS-DPOS/PTS commits 23b76deba0fd49e1c9243e00f0015264593dd704 - a60e54c79199479d23285a4b2c5dccf380542870 . A general description is available here: http://pts.cubeconnex.com/index.php?topic=37.0 .
With some tweaking it should apply to the BTS master code.

No warranties etc., this is an alpha version that has seen little testing.
