Now, we could try to fix this bug, and add the regression test coverage

its currently very sad state.  But I think the right answer is just to
remove the feature altogether.  It's evidently not being used, and it's
kind of insecure by design, and it would not be that hard for someone
to provide equivalent functionality entirely in userland if they really
wanted it.

I don't see a reason to keep pl/tcl in core at all so ripping out the functionality seems the least disruptive and perhaps even a deprecation of the PL (at least from a core perspective) in v10.
