Note that the binary blob is executed throught native client, which is
not enabled by default, so I /think/ you need explicit action from the
user (although if you enable NaCl for something else, then you might
enable stuff you actually don't want).

Having /home noexec won't help, since it's not run directly by the
system but by chromium.
