This can only be done by "hacking" the source  (scf.pl;   definition of $exetypes)

However, I guess this will be quite useless. Every user can open a window (or even use
the w2web command line option) and issue   "run_lapw &" there.

If you cannot trust your users, you have to take more strict measures, limiting the
cpu-time of processes other than ones started through a queuing system.
