Quite. One of the issues I had originally was security. I run it 
under SSL and with basic Apache authentication. Leafwa has 
always used sudo (although not very tightly configured before). 
At present it does do destructive things like removing newsgroup 
subscriptions, but starting to provide access to kill and other 
commands would open it up yet further and I'd probably shy away 
from doing that.
