But what does management think??  If the user screws something up how
much down time/loss of data will result?  I remember people coming back
from desert storm and telling me about how people were playing with 
unexploded submunitions, aka small bombs with flaky fuses, I am not
kidding on this.  So the question is how much damage can an moron 
do with a screw driver to your program and is that an acceptable
tradeoff for the benifits of python?  If you are realy parinoid
present it to your boss and ask him to decide.


ps just because you are parinoid does not mean you are wrong.
