Yes, it does seem some parents don't understand that if the child can't
reach from the floor (or climb to that height) or open the lock, the device
is less likely to be used inappropriately. And teaching the children how and
when to use the device when age appropriate.

i.e., nothing stops the admin from moving or reinstalling the rcs commands
to a bin directory not normally on all users path and making calls directly
to them. Then cluebating any users who go near the actual repo with rcs when
not needed.
