you can add an option to the configuration file ("safer=true") or maybe 
listen to an environment variable and if not set just permit all functions

if someone wants to abuse texworks to wipe someones disk, first of all 
the script has to come from an non tex related place, and users hav eto 
install it, and second, the fact that one can run a program 
(typesetting) already means that one can add a disk wiper
