Such an option would be EXTREMELY useful to us.
(I don't know enough about CoD to know whether it is there already - but
 presumably, if it is there currently, in its current form it would
 involve using CoD, which one might not want to do...)

Something else that maybe could be considered would be support for both
"signing executable code" and "ONLY running code which has been signed (or
signed by a particular certificate)".  Using the USER_JOB_WRAPPER
attribute I can manually achieve this already, but it is quite a lot of
hassle and would benefit from automation.  I think it would be quite a
good feature, IMHO... :)
