I expect this was sent prematurely, but I believe I understand what
you're saying :) And yeah, sorry, I was confusing which issue I'm
talking about. Turning on restricted mode doesn't alter BosConfig
(enabling the restricted mode does that).

Turning on restricted mode by default is inherently backwards
incompatible since it turns off 'bos exec' et al. No way around that,
since that's exactly why we want to turn it on in the first place.
