[dev-context] TeX on contextgarden disabled - \installprogram security

I've just found out about \installprogram, that lets you run any
command from TeX, bypassing the shellescape, openout and openin
setting. This means that I have a serious security problem on
contextgarden and therefore I have disabled all TeX typesetting.

Any advise on how to disable this?
