If it were merely a matter of removing an error check I think we would
have done it already.  However, pltemplate will have all the languages
in it whether the DBA wants to allow them to be used or not; so I'd say
that there really needs to be *some* sort of privilege check here.
What that is and how to implement it are the hard parts.
