That would mean implementing engines in something other than C, which
would mean an embedded lisp interpreter in GTK or something. ;-) You
can't sandbox C.

If you use non-engine themes, this is already true I would expect
(they can't do much beyond maybe segfault an app by exploiting known
bugs in image loaders).
