It is also very preventable; I've been pushing as hard as I can for the last six months or so for "multisignature transactions" as a standard part of the Bitcoin infrastructure. Here's how a future version of the Faucet will work to prevent an incident like today's:
Coins to fill up the Faucet's wallet will get sent to a "2 signatures required" bitcoin address.
The Faucet's wallet only contains one of the two private keys required to send out coins; the other one would be stored on another machine at some other web hosting company.
When sending out coins, the Faucet would generate one signature and then send the transaction to the second machine.
That second machine would look at the transaction, and check to make sure it looked like a valid Faucet transaction: very small payments to a few people happening at most every 10 minutes, with the change sent back into the main Faucet address. If it didn't smell fishy it would create the second signature and broadcast the completed transaction.
