it's funny you should mention that...i just *rewrote* the patch to
/etc/security to do *exactly that* that i first wrote at least two
years ago.  see pr misc/6566.

off hand, i'd say that anyone who feels like it ought to simply close
that pr.  the patch is way out of date, and i'm almost certain it has
bugs.  it's mostly worthless.
