Not any more so than deploying any other backend.  Even if I can't directly
write new classes, I might be able to expose methods on "System" as a web
service....(speaking of which, we may want to have a way to restrict which
classes can be deployed)  You need to secure the admin service in any case.

This is in our requirements doc, and also the to-do list.  I think we'll
definitely want something like this.

There will likely be other tools which will use the back-end APIs to deploy
services from GUIs, web infrastructures, etc.
