It's like you have a system() in your libc that automagically setuids you.

As mentioned at DW, a dmflags(int newflags) would be better.

I'd say yes but with tight control. Used correctly this can be very powerful and even be used to make it easier to add new commands to ACS. Potentially dangerous use must be prohibited at all costs, however.

couldnt ZDoom create a backup of the .ini and save the cvars the wad sets into the save file and restore the .ini upon exit? that way if somebody "unbindall"s you you can just push alt+f4 and your settings would be restored...

It's a incredibly simple function to add, as G_DoCommand just needs to be used. So if he hasn't added it already, I doubt he will.
