Unsafe , not unverifiable ... Unsafe code can mess up memory, and segfault
like any other C code .. If you use C/C++ , you already got a gun locked 
on to your foot ... :-)

All the security guarantees it can provide as the usual provided by any 
VM .. blocking native calls, checking for permissions to a library , and
isolated file storage ..

The difference between insanity and genius is measured by success
