If you have interactive users on that machine, then you're in big
trouble. Somebody could simply do: python -c

You'd be history then.

I'm not sure about the rest of your issue (I haven't followed it closely
enuf), but I *HIGHLY* recommend that you take that +s off of python
immediately. Even if you don't have interactive users, that is scary as
all hell.
