CallACS builtin is accessible from non-play scope

As of GZDoom 3.5.0, the builtin function CallACS (and, presumably, the other ACS_* builtins) can be used from outside the play scope. This is obviously unsafe.

The attached pk3 demonstrates that unsafety, by spawning an imp from ui scope. To use:
  1. Load it into GZDoom, along with a Doom-compatible IWAD.
  2. Start a game.
  3. Walk into an area where there's a decent amount of room above you.
  4. Press the Use key.
That'll spawn an imp on top of you—from StaticEventHandler.UiTick!

Crap. And wanna bet that changing this will break several mods which use ACS to do some of their HUD work?
