I understand this all and I've tried it all out too but I'm talking
about the stuff that can get evaluated that's just pure bash now. As
far as I can tell stuff like infinite loops can really screw us over
and it's possible to do things like get a directories contents using
relative paths. It's not really lethal like rm but it's not
particularly good for a server either. (I'm not against this idea
idea, please prove me wrong if you can)
