That would be a wee bit laggy, as Pavel has made it very clear that he 
will not be doing anything about this as it is not a server bug. 
The best solution is that if a site develops this problem is to monitor 
evals with out informing people. True people could use self deleting 
verbs, but in sever cases security could be tightened (might be difficult 
in a site as big as Lambda but hey).
