I do see the usefullness for something like that. *ponder* or do I, if you
have access to make, why not give you a true shell on the machine? Of
course, locking down single commands should be fairly simple :)

No, but there is still a big difference (imho) about having something like
a mud run shell commands, and having a true shell for the same. I don't
stay huddled over in the corner either, I take advantage of whatever I can
to make my networking life as secure, while still retaining freedom. (Now,
that sounded like some political statement :), Other people have other
views :)
