But what if the user knows the path to such application (let's say 
python command) and  executes it on the partition he/she should not be 
allowed to? Is it possible through lua scripts to set constrains on 
software usage such as a limited shell, for instance?

In fact, what I'd like to implement is something like a limited shell, 
on a particular node for a particular partition and a particular program.
