That's a great point - a possibility for admins to modify EVERYTHING they want,
to make it more suitable for their purposes and more secure. This is a great
way of improving programs, because if people want to get some of their own
problems solved, they have the best possible motivation to make it a good
solution, instead of working for a big corp. and trying to get off as easy
as possible.

No boundaries (remember MS-DOS ? :-)
