  -> use C-code. Does not matter. I can code buffer overflow -proof
routines for this simple stuff. Or just code a suid binary which runs
the script and does nothing else.. An additional security hole there,
though: I basically would have TWO suided programs now though crashing
a program which only runs another should be impossible (unless the init
routines can be crashed).
