Maybe an alternative would be to only allow loading (including)
cookbooks from SiteAdmin.Config (no other PHP code).  The Farm Admin
could copy to $FarmD/Cookbook all recipes he is prepared to see
running on his farm, and the Field Admin could load them.

Going this route, what about having a markup (:cookbook xyz:) that
would include_once the recipe passed as parameter ?  This way, recipes
could be loaded for specific pages, groups, etc.

This markup should have to be enabled by the Farm Admin.  When
enabled, the only thing users could do is to load an already approved

Would it not make life easier for many users  ?
