This mail is getting too much:-(

What bothered me is I saw a mentiion of sulogin. Since I've been 
configuring the occasional system w/o root login for some time, I tend 
to notice sulogin.

I'f long felt the idea of sulogin by default is flawed, it's so easoly 
bypassed it seems pointless. Except maybe on S/390, and arches I've not 
seen.
