agreed that there is a *big* demand for this. No need to have an 
advocacy thread on that :) Let's move onto the deep water.

We need to adopt concepts of chroot jail. Have you looked at Opcode 
module? If I remember correctly that's the module/functionality that we 
need to integrate, so certain opcodes won't be available for the end 
users. That's what we need, right?

I think the first thing to lookat is how PHP builds the jail.
