Nah, this really belongs to the system enhibiting rather than session
inhibiting (you'd also want to restrict other users from frying your
CD). Thus it should not be a part of the session interface but rather
a part of HAL (and from the traffic here it seems that a preliminary
implementation is already in its place).
