Not with 'options INSECURE' in the kernel though right?  Regardless,
my point was that it takes a bit of auditing to properly secure
a system, especially if you decide to leave the root password blank.
Whereas it takes one "bumble" to lock yourself out.  Still, we don't
want to *reduce* security, so if it is considered to reduce security
then perhaps it should be reverted.  I'm not convinced it does.
