That could be adequate for my needs (I'm sure a determined hacker can get 
past, that's fine). Is removing these tools as simple as removing their 
classes before saving the image? And any way to reduce things to a single 
executable, one that either launched the right image with the right VM, or 
(preferably) included the right image and VM internally in some way?

p.s. Since this would be a web app, I would most likely want users to run it 
headless (don't know how yet).
