  Users should be able to do themselves in anytime they feel brave.
Now, if you want to deliver a machine so that its users can only do
certain things, then you build upon the freedom of the LispOS to
implemetn and enforce the restriction that you choose, not the ones
some nameless OS implementer decided you should have.
