STELLAR should know it's execution context and functions should have an annotation that denotes if they are restricted to an execution environment

      Description

      We are adding new Stellar functionality, and have 2 environments
      where that functionality can be executed.

      Some functions however, will not make sense in all environments. Between the SHELL and STORM, some things just are not going to work.

      For example, executing a script, assumes the script is available on all the storm nodes, requires a user and possibly sudo access. This may not make sense from storm, but may make sense from the SHELL.

      Stellar should 'know' it's context, and only load functions that fit into that context.

      Currently we use "capability" checks to required things, and that includes:
      Optional<Object> console = context.getCapability(CONSOLE, false);
      see: ShellFunctions.java

      But this requires the author to do it correctly in the code. If we make it attributed then we can prevent loading and filter out. In other words there may be a difference between required capability and applicability

      This would also allow for non-runtime verification
