But it is relevant; in theory it is impossible to tell whether a
foreign script will ever finish executing. Hence the need for
time-outs and memory limits, etc.
Personally I feel that it's best to pass code as text, rather than bytecode.
You will also need a clever security model so some trusted scripts can
actually do something on the machines they run on.
