Multiple Users and Security

I'm a newbie, so forgive any etiquette breaking, please. :-)
I'm thinking of using Squeak in an environment where many users,
some untrusted, will be able to write Squeak "scripts" (methods
essentially) to extend an environment contained within a single
image on a server. The problem that comes to mind is that these
users will have access to all sorts of nasty things, like the
ability to say "SmallInteger := nil" or say, use file objects to
obliterate the image.
Thus, I'd like to make some classes use-only, and some classes
inaccessible, from their scripts. Is there any easy way of going
about this or existing functionality that may be helpful? Or do I
just have to dig down into the details of the compiler?
Thanks a lot.
