Arguable - 'cheating' should be facilitated by means of script.

While I have "ethical objections" against any kind of cheating, it is undeniably better that some cheaters (no, they're not likely to settle for scripted cheats) can do their thing in some place where they don't bother honest players and server admins.

Also, since the MTA anticheat has a long history of assorted malfunctions, maybe a killswitch could come in handy anyway... And if someone scripts an anticheat and wants that to "take over" without any hard-coded interference, this would be useful in yet another way.

I still think that MTA shouldnt be relying on external applications to be running for any reason, especially when most of the cheats can be facilitated by script for players to use.

However, i do agree about a possible need for a killswitch, that alone may justify this addition. It shouldn't be a hard add either.
