That's for sure.
I never intended Safe to be protection against hackers. It is meant
to provide for peace-of-mind when handing page modification capability
out to relative tyros. Somehow it is quite comforting to me when
system('rm -rf *') ;
doesn't run right off the bat....
I think it has been quite successful for the purpose intended.
