Disable commands?

Somewhere in the back of my mind is the idea that it was possible to disable specific commands in 4DOS /4NT times.
Was this indeed possible or am I mixing up things? And if it was possible: is that still the case in the current versions?

Not very important; it's just that this thought keeps nagging me .....

You can disable internal commands with SETDOS, e.g.
Code:
setdos /i-unzip

You can also use an alias to substitute something different:
Code:
alias unzip=c:\bin\util\unzip.exe
