Just upgraded to 1.6-current, and have noted that the "-" option is no
longer supported; can someone enlighten me as to why this option was
removed? It's pretty ubiquitous [it still works under Solaris!], and
it's been an indication of "full login su" since (time_t)
(gettimeofday(0) - greywolf.boottime) at least (4.1BSD)...
If it's a matter of whim, I'd just as soon it were put back. It's never
been indicated as a deprecated option.
