I don't think you're trolling :) Starting a big project with known-bad engineers is just a recipe for disaster. If you don't want clients to be able to do filesystem-like commands, don't let them talk to the file system; stick an API in front of it (FUSE? REST?) that only allows what you want them to be able to do.
