[svlug] making a very stripped down shell (korn, csh, etc.)

I've got a problem where I need to write my own scripting language to
run some programs I've written myself. I don't want to run a standard
shell because I want it to be very restricted in what it can do. That
is, it don't want it to to go through the normal linux authentication, I
don't want it to have access to the file system, I just want to be able
to use it's scripting and parsing functionality.
Does it make sense to look into using a standard shell for this and
somehow customizing it? Or should I consider just writing my own little
parsing engine from scratch. It just feels like I'd be reinventing
stuff that's done so much better than I could do it myself.
Thanks for any feedback on this.
