in thread UGU file rename script (GOLF?)

I understand that it would execute rm with the user's own permissions. And that may not be a problem for this particular application (though I would never deploy it on *my* network).

I'm more concerned that this sort of code will get passed on to a different application (cargo-cult style), where security *does* matter. To my thinking, there should at least be a comment about security in there by the eval.
