It also strikes me as a) a great way to create an overwhelming amount of
data; b) useless - consider the user edits a script, suspends the editing
session, runs the script, forgrounds the editing session, and undoes
whatever code they put in. Oh, and c) over-the-top Big Brother; I mean,
there's oversight, and there's this: if there's this mistrust of the
employees, then perhaps management should either hire trustworthy
employees, or only allow trusted employees to work on the systems.

          mark, *not* a fan of the idea.
