add new flag to php.ini:
disable_execute = On|Off
(default: On?)

which is the same as:
disable_functions = exec,shell_exec,passthru,system,popen,proc_open,pcntl_exec

=> make secure configuration easier

These functions aren't marked specifically and don't need any special attributes - meaning we can't magicly decide that those functions execute anything.
That in turn means any new extension, or even existing pecl extension, would not be protected by that feature - making it useless.
We found this out the hard way.. This sort of thing don't work.

Besides - we don't want to add more ini options.
