Umm... Please make sure not to follow MS's example and allow
powerful commands in the language. I think several TYPES of commands
should be avoided:
file reads (maybe a certain set of files can be accessed, but
file creation (same)
networking (allow contact to only certain hosts)
process spawning or program execution (don't allow ANY!)
Any more? You should just have:
* Get variable/Set variable
* certain "normal" side effects like send IM, print IM, etc.
It might be good for most of these to have "are you sure
you want to..." dialog boxes.
* flow control
* Access functions to internal jabber client features. :^)
