For example, as I mentioned in an earlier reply, I might not want
normal users to be able to run ftp, telnet, ssh, wget, gcc, or any
other number of commands. I still want users to be able to run the
bulk of the commands available on the system, though. I might also
want to allow another set of users to be able to run the commands
unavailable to normal users.

In other words, I'd like to restrict normal users more than the
default permissions setup.
