Don't we automagically fuss w/ /etc/motd (or has it been too long since I
looked)? If so, then wouldn't we need some way of dealing w/ re-generating
the message? That auto-regeneration is what I was thinking of being able
to control. If we don't automagically re-gen /etc/motd (with that
message), then just ignore my comment. :-)

Take care,
