XMonad actually compiles your configuration file, (which is nothing more than a haskell source file), and turns that into a custom window manager. I suppose the sysadmin that sets up xmonad for all the lucky users will probably know to precompile it, and direct xmonad to find it somewhere better. Even so, it seems that certain classes of programs have a very strong use case for being able to import new code to execute, and may do it inside /home.

Rather than just saying no to these sorts of programs, it would be great if we can look at what kind of code these programs might execute, and how to do it so it is restricted to certain levels.
