You take your responsibility. I strongly advise anyone against doing such a 
thing, should feepk's worries be justified. Incitation to theft is illegal.

On a more technical level, the LUA script engine is currently not safely 
checking object pointer access. So it is arguably a bad idea to use third 
party scripts (well ok, you could mess up anyway, but not as badly).
