Hi Eric, David,

This means that you cannot type "python" and press <enter> in any shared directory without the risk of a malicious being imported and executed.  

I think this is different from a scenario where someone explicitly runs a script or imports a module in interactive mode where it is also reasonable that such a person understands the importing mechanism.

Thanks for the quick responses btw!
