 Because it wasn't the point. :-) Some people wants to be removed from last
stats, some people wants to have it. All know last, almost noone knows
where to find useful date.

 I guess the solution will be sudo for last and no read rights for users,
plus last with a /etc/last.cfg regenerated from SQL. ;-) 

 We should leave this topic, because it's not quite about developing
Ubuntu, right? And thanks for brainstorming, I'll forward our chat to
sysadmin, but I'm pretty sure he would say: ,,I'm already doing that,
looser!'' ;-)
