Should this be a custom build or should it we make it an option in the
configure script, something like a kids mode or safe mode option. I'm all
for an easy fix to raise the quality of life for someone, but there is more

the features that need disabled are not going to be the same for everyone,
perhaps a graduating scale could be implemented "safe, safer, safest".
 It's just something to think about.
